Body
I. SUMMARY

This item is on the agenda because the voter-approved Charter has an effective date of January 17, 2019. The Charter establishes the Council members' and Mayor's wages/compensation and benefits and also seeks direction on City Clerk and City Treasurer's wages/compensation and benefits. The Charter states Council members' total monthly wages/compensation shall be set at the Low Income Limits for a family of four (4) as set forth by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development for Los Angeles County for the year 2018. Furthermore, the existing Council/Mayor differential of 10 percent shall continue. With respect to the City Clerk and City Treasurer, the Charter says their salaries shall be set by resolution of the City Council and maintained in a range appropriate under the City's salary schedule in accordance with their highest paid subordinate or manager. The Carson Municipal Code's provisions regarding elected officials' salaries require amendments for consistency with the Charter.
