How much do elected members get paid?
Elected members receive salaries that vary depending on the size of each council. The agency responsible for setting salaries is the Remuneration Authority. Remuneration for each elected member is based on the population the council represents and its annual expenditure, and is adjusted annually based on changes to population and expenditure. As an elected member you cannot decline to accept your salary.
