WILLIAMSPORT - A raise in pay may be in store for the Williamsport mayor and council.
Mayor John Slayman recommended the salary increases, saying it had been 13 years since the town's part-time leaders had been granted raises.
Slayman recommended increasing the mayor's salary to $3,000 a year from $1,800; the assistant mayor's salary to $2,200 a year from $1,200; and each of the five council member's salaries to $1,700 a year from $1,000.
The mayor's recommendation, which came at a council workshop session, is expected to get a vote at next week's regular Town Council meeting.
