Most of those who showed up to speak their mind about proposed pay increases for council members and the mayor Monday said they didn't like the idea - but there weren't many of them. Only five people spoke, and one of them said he supported the idea of a pay increase. The council started the process of giving itself a 28.5 percent pay raise for itself while boosting the mayor's pay by 15 percent with a 4-3 vote earlier this month. But it decided to postpone a final vote until June because one of the four members supporting the move couldn't attend Monday's session, putting the proposal at risk of failure. "I am appalled that you could even think about a 28 1⁄2 percent raise for yourselves," said city resident Victoria Thomas.
