Next Biloxi Mayor Could Get More Money

The next mayor of Biloxi could receive a big raise in pay.

Tuesday the City Council introduced an ordinance that would increase the mayor's salary to $119,000 per year. That's nearly a 25 % increase over Mayor A.J. Holloway's present salary.

The ordinance also would give City Council members an extra $6,000 over a four-year period. Biloxi leaders are expected to vote on the ordinance at their next meeting.
