City Council members aren’t employees

Thanks for printing the chart of city paid salary and benefits.

It enabled me to finally figure out what is wrong with the current method of determining City Council members’ compensation.

To quote: Each City Council member’s total compensation will vary based on hire/re-hire and individual benefit selections.

City Council members are not "hired," they are elected; therefore, the rules in place for city employees (who are hired and can be fired) don’t apply to our elected council members.

Equal compensation for equal responsibility — this is logical and needs to be enacted immediately and retroactively.
