TUPELO, Miss. (WCBI)-Elected officials in Tupelo could be coming home with a bit more in their wallets.

Tonight the council will meet and one of the topics on the table is pay raises.

The current salary is $16,932 for the council members and $92,200 for the mayor.

Since the 2010 fiscal year, the council has received no raise.

City employees received a 3 percent raise in the 2012 fiscal year.

If approved changes wouldn’t go into effect until the elected officials begin a new term in July.

If the City Council doesn’t approve a raise for elected officials it means the council and the mayor won’t be eligible for raises until 2017.
