  • Next Hillview officials to see big pay increase

     HILLVIEW - City officials who are elected this fall in Hillview will receive a pay hike starting in January.

    While the city council pay will be set, the compensation for the next mayor could be a floating number.

    The next mayor will be paid $125 per day worked. Under the ordinance, a weekly report must be filed and the mayor paid for the days worked.
