ACKERMAN, Miss. (WCBI) – The next mayor of Ackerman will now take home less money per year.
The Ackerman Board of Alderman voted 4 to 1 on reducing the pay for mayor from $48,000 to $18,000.
The city has a little over 1500 residents and Alderman say, the salary for the part time mayor was too high for a city of that size.
The changes will take place beginning with the next term.
