Mayor seeks legal opinion on pay

-A A +A
By David Giuliani

Mayor Tony Marquez said Thursday he is requesting a legal opinion on how the city should handle the results of the ballot questions over whether to cut the pay of the mayor and City Council members.

“I think the council needs to abide by the wishes of the community. The public voted to amend the charter, and the voters had the power to change the mayor and council salaries,” said Marquez, who took his oath of office on Wednesday.

He said he has directed interim City Manager Elmer Martinez to get a written legal opinion from City Attorney Matt Sandoval.
