Salary doubles to $30K for mayor’s position

Becky Barnes,

Beginning Jan. 1, 2019, the mayor of Cynthiana be earning $30,000, which is double what the current mayor earns.
The commission voted unanimously to support the pay increase with the first reading of an ordinance making the change. There will have to be a second reading with approval before it becomes reality.
There remained some hesitation at Tuesday’s regular meeting of the commission concerning the hours worked by the mayor and compensation.
