Members of the La Grange City Council are considering giving themselves a pay raise.
The council held a first reading of a pay raise ordinance Monday night. If the ordinance passes at next month’s city council meeting, council members will receive an additional $100 per month, bumping their monthly stipend from $400 to $500 per month.
Their stipend would increase from $4,800 to $6,000 per year. The change would take effect Jan. 1.
