The Godfrey Village Board has raised salaries for two elected positions. The Village Clerk and Mayor will each receive raises of 6% the first year, and 3% in each of the following three years. Mayor Mike McCormick still says he does not want a raise, so the village attorney will draw up wording that allows him to refuse the raise.
McCormick currently makes $35,000 per year. The trustees did vote a raise to the Village Clerk, a position which has been held for a number of years by Pam Whisler. Her last raise came in 2008, and currently makes $40,500 a year.
