Mayor, aldermen give themselves a raise
WAVELAND — The Waveland Board of Aldermen has voted to increase salaries for the next four years for themselves and the mayor.
Under the city’s special charter, Mayor David Garcia tells The Sun Herald that the board must set the salaries for themselves, the mayor and the city clerk at their first meeting.
The board and Garcia were elected Dec. 7 and were sworn in Dec. 8. They held their first meeting Dec. 9, but recessed until Dec. 13 without voting on the salary issue.
Garcia’s salary was raised from $60,000 to $72,000 annually. He was making $63,383 a year as fire chief.
Aldermen, paid $14,400 annually, will bring in $1,200 more a year.
Garcia said the board voted not to give a raise to City Clerk Lisa Planchard.
