Sensible Pay for SA

The goal of Sensible Pay for SA is to amend the City of San Antonio’s Charter to provide annual salaries for City Council members and the mayor – without raising taxes or increasing the city budget. Under the existing City Charter, approved in 1951, City Council members are paid $20 per meeting with a maximum of $1,040 per year. This pay scale was established when the City Council acted as a part-time governmental body. As San Antonio has grown, the issues and demands on the City Council and mayor’s time have increased and it is time to compensate them accordingly – bringing them in line with other major cities in Texas.
