The Council is up for a 10% raise, suggested by Cotton.
The council also will consider giving Cotton an 11 percent raise, which would bring his compensation, including wages and deferred compensation, to $242,640. His last raise was in May 2007.
Councilman Jerome Stocks, who proposed the raise, said it would recognize Cotton’s performance with an increase comparable to the raises for employee groups such as firefighters.
Either the UT, Stocks, or the ETA goofed, because the ETA reported that the firefighters did not take a raise this year.

The council will vote on the raises Wednesday night at City Hall. 6pm.
