Warren councilman to ask for pay freeze for city officials


WARREN

Warren Councilman Al Novak will ask council to approve legislation Wednesday night to freeze the wages and benefits of certain elected and appointed city officials for the next four years.

The legislation would freeze the pay of the mayor and safety/service director, auditor and deputy auditor and the law director, deputy law director and assistant law directors.

Novak has said the intent behind the freeze is to require top officials to accept the same sacrifice that is being required of union employees in the most recent contracts.

Several contracts were approved recently, and contracts for the police department’s ranking officers and patrol officers are on the agenda for tonight’s meeting.

The meeting begins at 7:30 p.m.
