Q May the board vote to increase the salary of the mayor this month?

A The municipal governing authorities may authorize an increase in the salary of the mayor to begin at the inception of the next term of office, provided that the salary is set in good faith and is not arbitrary and unreasonable in relation to the municipal resources and duties of the office. Therefore, the salary increase would have to have been enacted in June to apply to the term beginning in July. (Attorney Generalís Opinion to Collins, June 23, 2017)
