SANTA FE, N.M. (KRQE) – The next mayor of Santa Fe will see a big pay bump starting next year.

According to the Santa Fe New Mexican, the Independent Salary Commission voted 4-3 Wednesday night to set the base salary of the city’s mayor at $110,000 a year.

That’s set to go into effect in March of 2018 when the position becomes a full-time executive job.

The commission did consider a higher pay range of $145,000 to $175,000.

Members also voted to reconvene after the first year of the next mayor’s term to review the salary set Wednesday night.

Current Mayor Javier Gonzales makes just under 30,000 for a part-time position.
