CBJ Charter section 3.10 provides the Assembly—by ordinance—shall provide for compensation for the Mayor and other Assemblymembers. However, an ordinance that increases Assemblymember compensation shall not take effect until after the October election.
This ordinance would establish the compensation for the Planning Commission and the Hospital Board of Directors at $225 per month, establish the compensation for the Mayor at $3,500 per month, and establish the compensation for other Assemblymembers at $750 per month. Currently, this ordinance has an effective date of January 1, 2022.
On March 10, 2020, the Assembly Finance Committee amended this ordinance to include the Planning Commission and Hospital Board. On May 5, 2021, the Assembly Finance Committee also discussed this topic.
