City Council Workshop

The Naperville city council recently held a workshop to allocate funds for both Social Services and Community Development Block Grants, or CDBG.

Two main criteria to receive a CDBG are providing affordable housing to low-income residents and removing barriers for people with disabilities.

This year the city received 13 applications totaling $1.7 million and awarded nine grants totaling $830,000.

For Social Service Grants, the city received 31 applications totaling $900,000 with city staff recommending 24.

After a brief discussion, council approved a $9,000 grant to a 25th group Ecumenical Adult Care, taking away $3,000 from Loaves & Fishes, KidsMatter and Samaritan Interfaith Counseling Center.

All allocations will go before council for formal approval at a future meeting.

At the same workshop, council discussed their pay and benefits.

The mayor currently makes $30,000 a year while city council makes $12,000 plus a $1,200 stipend for cell phones and internet. They are also required to work 1,000 hours a year.

Beginning in 2015, council members will be asked to sign an affidavit promising they worked their full hours. $1,000 of their stipend will be wrapped into their salary, giving them a raise in salary to $13,000 a year.

Their benefits will stay the same.

They plan to discuss the mayor’s salary at a future meeting.
