During a special Elgin Town Council meeting Thursday, councilmen voted unanimously to raise the salaries for the mayor and council.

The mayor’s salary was increased from $2,400 annually to $3,600, which equals $100 more per month.

Individual council members’ salaries increased from $720 annually to $1,020.

The amended salaries will go into effect March 1 when Mayor-elect Brad Hanley and incoming council members Melissa Emmons and Bubba Ernst take office. A swearing-in ceremony for the new members will be held March 1 at 7 p.m. at Blaney Baptist Church gymnasium.

The monthly council meeting will be held afterward.
