Council could get pay hike when 2013 budget is approved
As part of a policy approved in 2006 under mayor David Miller, this year's automatic raise for city councillors and the mayor comes in at an estimated 2 percent.
That would see councillors' $102,000 salary boosted by another $2,000 and the mayor's pay would jump almost $3,500 from the $172,000 he makes now.
The hike will be based on the average of the 2012 monthly consumer price index, which means that the increases could come in lower.
Council got a 3 percent pay hike in 2012 after turning down a raise in 2011.
Deputy Mayor Doug Holyday tells the Toronto Sun he doesn't know if he'd support raises and isn't sure where council stands on the matter.
