Council Member Does Not Want Pay Raise

City Councilman Ricky Burgess plans to introduce legislation Monday that would rescind the pay raise that council members are scheduled to receive next year. Burgess says in this time of economic uncertainty, the council should try to be as fiscally responsible as possible. He says everyone will need to sacrifice and that council should lead by example. Burgess said he has not spoken with any council members about the issue, but hopes they will support his efforts.
