  • On motion by Wes Bellamy, seconded by Kathy Galvin, Council authorized that a request be made of state legislators to amend the City Charter to allow City Council to set its own compensation. The General Assembly must approve charter changes because Virginia is a Dillon Rule state, meaning localities only have powers specifically granted to them by the state legislature. Currently, councilors make $18,000 a year and the mayor makes $20,000 a year. The range is the maximum allowed under state guidelines.
