2-19-18: GRANTS PASS CITY COUNCIL CONSIDERS STIPEND FOR COUNCILORS.

THE GRANTS PASS CITY COUNCIL IS CONSIDERING, WHETHER OR NOT, COUNCILORS SHOULD RECEIIVE A STIPEND FOR THEIR EFFORTS FOR THE CITY. SUPPORTERS SAY THAT WITH THE WORK LOAD, AND HOW MUCH TIME IT TAKES FROM COUNCILORS LIVES THAT YES. IT WOULD ALSO ENCOURAGE MORE PEOPLE TO RUN FOR COUNCIL POSITIONS. OPPONENTS HOWEVER SAY THAT THE POSITIONS SHOULD BE BASED ON VOLUNTEERISM, AND THAT PAY COULD BRING THE WRONG KINDS OF CANDIDATES TO RUN.
