Cherokee budget proposes another pay raise for council


With elections a week away and threat of a lawsuit still hanging, the Cherokee Tribal Council is considering a proposed budget that includes a pay raise of nearly 5 percent for its members.

The budget, prepared by outgoing Principal Chief Michell Hicks, suggests raising the pay for councilmembers from $80,800 to $84,511, with the proposed salary for the chair and vice chair reaching $90,547 and $87,529, respectively. The raises would go into effect when the new council is seated.
