Item No. 22.
Proposed Ordinance 20-03 – Consider approval to advertise for a public hearing and vote on Proposed Ordinance 20-03 amending Section 15-2 of the Roswell City Code governing compensation of the Municipal Judge. (Stubbs/Holloman)
Initiated by: Joe Neeb
Section 15-2 establishes the annual compensation to be paid to the Municipal Judge. Currently, Section 15-2 sets annual compensation at $60,000.00. Due to changing circumstances, the amount currently set forth no longer reflects compensation generally paid to municipal judges in similar communities around the state. The proposed ordinance would increase annual compensation by $10,000.00 for the coming 2020-2024 term of office and thereafter set the compensation level at 80% of the salary of state magistrate judges.
Once the salary is set, it may not be increased or decreased during the judge’s current term of office unless additional non-judicial duties are imposed on the office of the judge.
The proposed ordinance would increase the Municipal Judge’s compensation from $60,000 to $70,000 per year for the 2020-2024 term and thereafter set the Judge’s compensation at 80 percent of the salary set for the state magistrate court judges.
The City Attorney has reviewed the proposed Ordinance.
As an Ordinance, Council must hold a public hearing after having provided public notice of the hearing. The Ordinance would become effective five days after publication of its adoption.
BOARD AND COMMITTEE ACTION:
The item was not heard at a committee, in order that the proposed amendment may be acted upon in time for the beginning of the 2020 term of office for the Municipal Judge.
Consider approval to advertise for a public hearing and vote on Proposed Ordinance 20-03 amending Section 15-2 of the Roswell City Code governing compensation of the Municipal Judge.
