Revelstoke City Council is in the process of creating the 2020 budget.
It has been proposed that they increase remuneration pay to mayor and council from $15,300 to $25,000 for councillors and from $30,000 to $60,000 for the mayor.
Councillor Steven Cross resigned in protest of the raise. Two days later councillor Cody Younker, who brought forward the proposal in the first place, said he was listening to the community and no longer supporting the raises.
City staff also voted to strike, the day after Cross resigned, saying in a news release that if mayor and council get a raise city staff should also get a raise.
