Augusta commissioners will not receive pay raise; it could be discussed later
AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW/WAGT) - Members of the Augusta Commission won’t be getting a raise, after all — at least not right now.
District 1 Commissioner Bill Fennoy requested their annual salary be $40,000. Many of his colleagues did not agree, saying it was “inappropriate” to vote on their own pay bump.
Salaries for Augusta commissioners vary, with most making around $17,000.
In comparison, News 12 found Savannah council members make about $25,000. Over in Columbus, most commissioners take home around $15,000 annually.
