McMahan to propose salary cut for himself, council members

June 7, 2014

Bauxite Mayor Johnny McMahan has proposed two ordinances that will seek to lower the salaries of council members and the mayor, effective Jan. 1, 2015.

McMahan plans to present these to the City Council at its June 16 meeting.

McMahan said, "This is a cost-cutting measure that I believe we need to do for the financial stability of the town. I will propose a $50 per month salary for council members; and recommend lowering the mayor's salary from $865 a month to $740 per month."
