SEYMOUR >> Whoever becomes Seymour’s next first selectman will receive a $12,500 raise from the current salary.
The Board of Selectmen Tuesday unanimously approved boosting the elected position’s annual pay from $72,500 to $85,000. The raise takes effect Dec. 7, well after the November municipal election. State law prohibits towns from granting mid-term salary increases.
The selectmen approved the raise based on a unanimous recommendation from the first selectman’s bipartisan Salary Committee, comprised of Board of Finance Chairman Bill Sawicki, Board of Finance member Beverly Kennedy, Selectman Paul Roy and Selectman Al Bruno.
Sawicki said the salary for the town’s top dog hasn’t been increased in more than a decade. Prior to that, when the position paid about $52,000 a year, the salary hadn’t been raised since 1998.
