Lula City Council expenses, compensation ordinance passes

POSTED: April 23, 2014 1:00 a.m.

Lula City Council has approved an ordinance that lays out how council members will be paid for extra meetings and how much they can expect to be reimbursed.

Council salaries already were set at $100 monthly and the mayor’s pay is $400 a month.

The ordinance states council members can get paid an additional $100 per meeting outside the city up to three meetings, or $300, and $50 per meeting inside the city up to two meetings, or $100. The mayor can get paid $100 per meeting outside the city up to four meetings, or $400, and $50 per meeting inside the city up to three meetings, or $150.

Also, the five council members and the mayor could each receive $50 for one additional work session. Currently, the city has one work session and one regularly scheduled meeting per month.

The most a council member could earn per month would be $550, and the mayor could make no more than $1,000 monthly, the ordinance states.

The ordinance also calls for elected officials to be paid 68 cents per mile, with a limit of $100 every three months. Also, they can be compensated for up to 15 meals every three months.

Lodging expenses would be fixed at $125 per day and limited to five days over six months.

Higher lodging amounts “may be considered by full council in a regular scheduled monthly council meeting on a case-by-case basis, as warranted by geographical location and meeting requirements,” the ordinance states.
