The San Luis Obispo City Council voted 4-1 Tuesday night to give itself a pay raise.

Currently, the mayor makes $1,500 per month and council members make $1,200 per month.

The council voted to increase the mayor’s salary by 15 percent and council members’ salary by 2 percent.

The last time the city council got a pay increase was in 2014. The increase will go into effect in Jan. 2019.

The council also agreed to increase the amount of money members of the Architectural Review Commission and the Planning Commission make from $60 per meeting to $70 per meeting, not to exceed $280 per month. That increase will go into effect in July 2018.
