ARTICLE IV. MAYOR

Sec. 2‑123. Compensation.

 The compensation of the mayor shall be two hundred dollars ($200.00) per calendar month, so long as the mayor serves the entire month.  For months during which the mayor serves less than one full calendar month, the amount of compensation shall be computed by multiplying $200 times a fraction, the numerator of which is the number of days during a calendar month that the mayor serves and the denominator of which is 30.  At no time shall the rate of compensation be increased before the date on which the next regular town election occurs or would occur but for a lack of opposed candidates.  The Mayor may decline to accept any monthly compensation payment.  Said action shall be treated by the Town as a non-payment of compensation.  Any decision to decline compensation must be in writing by the Mayor and filed with the town clerk.   (Code 1962, 2‑12; Ord. No. 88‑4, 1, 1‑26‑88; Ord. 94-5, 2, 5-17-94; Ord. No. 07-09, 1, 5-15-07;  Ord. No. 10-08, 2, 6-15-10)
