Regional council could get pay hike

CKTB-News- Regional council pay

A citizen's committee is recommending Niagara's regional councillors get a 1.5% pay increase.

The recommendation will come before the Corporate Services Committee on Wednesday after the committee considered policies in places like Waterloo and Halton.

Lincoln Councillor Rob Foster says the committee is recommending councillors' pay be increased in line with non-union employees.

The adjustments would be made at the start of December every year.

The Regional Chair would not get the increase, and the raise would not be retroactive.
