LOGAN – With minimal discussion or debate, the members of the Logan Municipal Council voted themselves and Mayor Holly Daines a 3 percent pay increase at their regular meeting on June 18.

As required by law, the council held a hearing to solicit public comment on the Ordinance 24-12 (Schedules for Logan Elected and Executive Municipal Officers FY 2024-2025) at that meeting. 

Only regular council-watcher Gail B. Yost rose to that occasion, pronouncing the council members to be well-worth the proposed pay raise.

Starting July 1, Daines will be paid an annual salary of $122,094 – up from $118, 270 in Fiscal 2023-2024 – plus a $6,000 vehicle allowance, which was unchanged from the previous fiscal year.

The salaries for council members during Fiscal Year 2024-2025 will be $19,113, up from $18,555. The council members will also receive an annual $300 vehicle allowance for travel expenses incurred while on city business, also unchanged from the previous year.

Complying with recent changes to Utah Code, the council members also approved a schedule of compensation for the city’s executive municipal officers, which included pay hikes.

On that document, listed as Exhibit 1 to Ordinance 24-12, the salaries of various officials ranged from a low of $67,570 for the city’s customer relations manager to a high of $161,267 for Logan’s finance director.
