With the new mayor breaking a tie, the City Council on Wednesday voted to give the city manager a three-year contract.
City Manager Timothy Dodge, a Santa Rosa native, will get $95,000 a year, which is what he has been making since the city hired him last spring. Dodge will be able to get increases of 1 to 5 percent a year, based on the council’s evaluations of his performance.
In another decision, the council voted unanimously to hire interim City Attorney Dave Romero for the permanent position. He’ll make $100,000 a year.
