Danville, VA - Danville city council members may get a pay raise. In their meeting Tuesday night, they plan to vote whether they should increase their own salaries.
Currently, council members get $5,000 a year and the mayor gets $7,000. The raise would bring council members to $10,000 the mayor to $12,000. If approved, the pay increases would start July 1.
Council also plans to consider approving the creation of a resolution. It would ask the Postal Service to re-open their downtown office location as soon as possible. The downtown post office was closed due to safety concerns earlier this month.
