Burton Metropolis Council will increase attorney’s pay to $140 per hour

BURTON, MI — Council members approved the second and final reading of an ordinance Monday night that secures a $15-per-hour raise for the city attorney.

The final decision comes after raising salaries for the fire chief, treasurer, city clerk and assessor at previous meetings. Both readings of the ordinance were unanimously approved.

Compensation for the city attorney will go from $125 per hour to $140 per hour beginning July 1 until modified by ordinance, according to the new ordinance.

City Attorney Amanda Doyle said the city is typically billed anywhere from 27-30 hours each pay period.

Doyle did not receive any type of hazard pay through COVID-19, she said.

Doyle’s pay is now in line with Swartz Creek, Fenton Township and Gaines Township attorney hourly rates at $140.

Previously, at $125, the city attorney earned the same amount as similar positions in Flushing, Mt. Morris and Grand Blanc Township.

The only remaining salary on the ordinance still unaffected in recent months is the city’s police chief. That salary increased to a maximum of $95,000 this year.

The police chief is the highest-paid administrative officer in the ordinance.
