A raise for the city manager is in front of the Ketchikan City Council on Thursday.
A final vote on the pay increase was postponed during the last council meeting after members voted unanimously to reduce the amount of the raise. Amylon’s current annual salary is $195,578. The original motion called for increasing that to $220,000 a year.
However, during the Feb. 21st meeting, council members voted to amend the raise to about $205,300. Before a final vote could be taken, Amylon asked for a recess and talked briefly with City Mayor Bob Sivertsen. When the council returned to regular session, Sivertsen called for a postponement. The council agreed to delay the vote.
An executive session is scheduled Thursday for the council to review the results of the manager’s annual evaluation – a personnel matter. Some council members were not present for a Feb. 7th executive session to evaluate Amylon’s performance.
Amylon asked that a vote on his raise take place after the executive session.
Also Thursday, the council will consider whether to protest a liquor license renewal application from The Moose Lodge. According to a memo from City Clerk Kim Stanker, the club is delinquent on paying sales taxes. Stanker writes that the Moose has been delinquent four other times since 2003.
Thursday’s meeting starts at 7 p.m. in City Council chambers at City Hall. Public comment will be heard at the start of the meeting.
