2017 Ballot Question 2D – Compensation of Mayor and Councilors

Ballot Question 2D – City Council Compensation
Read the full text of Ordinance 2017-33 approved by City Council

Because of the amount of time and personal resources required to fulfill the duties of a City Councilor, the monthly compensation for members of the Lafayette City Council is proposed to increase or decrease, in all even numbered years, by the same collective percentage rates as the general City employees for the immediate two calendar years. 

This ballot question is setting the implementation method to be used for future Council compensation increases/decreases, and is not setting a specific salary for City Council. 

Official Ballot Wording for Ballot Question 2D – City Council Compensation:
Shall Section 4.3 of the Lafayette Home Rule Charter be amended to provide that in the absence of an ordinance setting compensation for the Lafayette City Council, the monthly compensation for members of the Lafayette City Council shall be increased or decreased, in all even-numbered years, by the same collective percentage rates as the budgeted compensative adjustments provided to the general employees of the City for the immediate two calendar years?
