The salary of the mayor, city council and public utilities commission will be set for the next two years at Today’s New Ulm City Council meeting. In 2018, the council asked the finance director to bring the issue before the council every two years. The last changes to these salaries were effective Jan. 1, 2013. Currently salaries are $10,500 for the mayor, $8,000 for councilors and $6,000 for commissioners. The council has the option of an increase or of leaving the salary at the same levels. According to Minnesota State Statute, any change in salary must be made before a general election, to be in effect Jan. 1 the following year.
