per cent with' the average of 210
pre cent. This would hike the
average councilmen salaries in the
cities polled from $442 to $1,045.
The survey concludes: "Cer-
tain rules of thumb to be applied
in setting salaries for part-time
councilmen seem to emerge from
the survey findings . . charter
commissions and others should
take these general principles inth
account."
The survey concludes that com-
pensation should be:
1) Set on an annual rather than
a per meeting basis to reflect thew
time spent outside council meet-
ings and to encourage the giving
of additional time.
2) Set at a level high enough to
permit qualified' and interested,
persons to-seek the office without
regard to socio-economic grouping
in the community.
3) Not be set at such a high
level that persons will seek the
office as a main source of income
or as a financial bonus for a suc-
cessful campaign.
