Wheeling residents will vote on council pay increase

WHEELING, W.Va. (WTRF) - Citizens of Wheeling will vote on a pay increase for city council members in the upcoming election. 

Council voted at a public hearing Tuesday night to put the pay increase on the May ballot. 

No one signed up to speak at the public hearing, but council did consider a written objection. 

Vice Mayor Chad Thalman says the pay scale has not been adjusted since 1992, and the increase would adjust for inflation since then. 

If approved, the increase would not take effect until 2020.
