N. Illinois village president takes salary cut
POPLAR GROVE (AP) — The president of the northern Illinois village of Poplar Grove has decided to take a 50 percent pay cut to provide money to hire a village administrator.
The Rockford Register Star reports the Village Board unanimously approved reducing John Neitzel's $20,000 annual salary to $10,000 on Monday. Neitzel says his duties will become less demanding with the new hire, prompting the drop in pay.
The board also voted to cap each trustee's pay at a maximum of $5,000 annually. Attendance at a board meeting warrants $125 apiece, with committee meetings earning $50 each.
