Council members give themselves a raise
Members of the Rosemount City Council will make a few more dollars in 2009. The council voted Tuesday night to raise salaries slightly to stay comparable with other similar sized metro cities.
In 2009 the four council members will receive $6,210 up from $6,000 per year. In 2010 the salary will rise again to $6,396. Assistant city administrator Emmy Foster said that amount is within the 10 percent range of the average compensation at similar sized cities.
