D'Iberville council gives mayor $20k pay raise

D'IBERVILLE, MS (WLOX) - The D'Iberville City Council said 'yes' Tuesday night to the proposed pay raise for the Mayor Rusty Quave. In a unanimous vote, the council voted to raise the mayor's salary by a little more than $20,000. That brings his annual salary to $45,000 a year, and will take effect in June.

At a city council meeting just two weeks ago, all residents in attendance, with the exception of one, supported the proposition.

City leaders said they made their decision because of all the work Mayor Quave has put into the city, especially with regard to economic development.
