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.
