Cary to consider pay raise for clerk

CARY – Whoever is elected village clerk might be paid a little more.

The Village Board is considering a proposal to adjust the clerk’s pay to $50 a meeting, or a net annual salary of $2,400 to $3,600, depending on the number of meetings.

Village Clerk Nancy Bragg is paid $1,500 a year.

The clerk position will be up for election in April. Village trustees are scheduled to vote on the change tonight.

“The proposed ordinance addresses salary for duties based on a schedule that ties to meeting volume rather than a fixed salary amount which is in place today,” Village Administrator Chris Clark said in an email to the Northwest Herald.

If approved by the Village Board, the new pay schedule would go into effect on or after May 7, Clark said.

The village clerk signs official documents approved by the Village Board, calls roll during meetings, manages the meeting recording process and takes notes for meeting minutes. During a typical month, there are four or five meetings.

The clerk serves during Village Board meetings, committee meetings, Board of Zoning, Planning and Appeals meetings, and any special Village Board workshops.

Also today, the Village Board will consider whether to allow a proposed Athletico office at 732 Northwest Highway next to Jewel-Osco in the Cary Square Shopping Center.

The 3,000-square-foot space previously was occupied by Johnson Eye Care. It has been vacant for more than four years.

Athletico provides athletic training, physical and occupational therapy and fitness services to its clients, according to documents provided to the village. Service-oriented business offices and medical offices are allowed in B-2 business zoning districts with a Village Board-approved conditional-use permit.
