It pays to be on council

June 7, 2013

WOONSOCKET – Even after taking a 10 percent pay cut recently, members of the City Council are still among the highest paid officials of their kind in the state, at $9,000 a year.
But all that could change if a proposal to slash the salaries of councilors and members of the School Committee gains any traction at a special meeting called for Monday night. Council salaries would drop by 33 percent, taking them down to $6,000.
For school officials, the cut would be closer to 44 percent, dropping salaries from $7,200 to $4,000, with a $250 perk for the chairperson.
