DENVER -- The Denver City Council took a step Tuesday to give council members and the mayor a pay raise of ten percent.
Denver is the only major Colorado city that pays council members a full time salary. They point out their pay has not increased as much as other city employees since 2003.
But when a lot of people just aren't making more money these days, it's a touch subject.
Some council members think the raise is too much. But after an hour of discussion, it was decided to send the proposal of a raise to the vote of the full council.
The measure goes to the mayor-council committee next Tuesday morning. And then it will have two readings before the full city Council during the two Monday night meetings after that.
