A study session is scheduled Tuesday to review compensation for Broomfield City Council members.
The City Council is required under the municipal code to review the compensation at least once in 2022.
Beginning in 2023, the compensation for council members and the mayor is required to automatically increase every two years on July 1 “by an amount equal to the average percentage increase in wages provided in the previous year to those city employees covered by the personnel merit system,” the municipal code reads.
That merit system, which was passed by an ordinance in October 2021, currently requires the following compensation for City Council members:
- Any member elected or chosen prior to Nov. 2, 2021, receives $800 per month;
- Any member elected or chosen prior to Nov. 2, 2021, who is serving as mayor pro tem, receives an additional $100 per month;
- Any member elected on Nov. 2, 2021, or chosen/elected after that date, receives $1,200 per month;
- Any member who was elected/chosen to serve as mayor pro tem on or after Nov. 2, 2021, receives an additional $300 per month;
- A mayor who is elected prior to Nov. 2, 2021, receives $1,100 per month; if they are elected on or after that date, they receive $1,750 per month.
Any compensation increases take effect at the beginning of a member’s new term of office, and do not take effect during a member’s term, according to the code.
Broomfield City Council meets at 6 p.m. Tuesday at the George Di Ciero City and County Building, 1 DesCombes Drive.
