Each Councilmember receives a monthly stipend of $300 per month for his/her service. Visit PublicPay for detailed information about the Town Council’s compensation. Councilmembers receive no other benefits from the Town, other than the Town pays the employer share for retirement.
Positions with Additional Compensation
Council members may participate in a decision to appoint themselves to a position that will result in additional compensation to them, subject to conditions stated in Regulation 18705.5 (Regulations of the Fair Political Practices Commission, Title 2, Division 6, California Code of Regulations). One of these conditions is that the Town Council post Form 806, which identifies each position the council appoints for which compensation is paid, the salary or stipend for each position, and the names of each official who has been appointed as the agency’s representative, or alternate.
