The City of Goshen has given its future commissioners and mayor a raise for the first time in at least six years, Mayor Bob Thacker said.
Starting in January, the mayor of the City of Goshen will make $300 a month, up from $150 and city commissioners will make $150 a month, up from $100.
Thacker said the city passed a new ordinance with the increases in hopes of attracting more people to serve on the small city commission.
“We’re not going to be here forever,” Thacker said. “We need to entice people to run.”
