Roanoke city council took a step this morning toward its first salary increase since 2008.
Mayor David Bowers would go from making $20,000 to $23,000.
The vice mayor's position, now held by Court Rosen, would go from $16,560 to $20,000
The salary for all other council members would go from $15,560 to $20,000.
Council directed the city attorney to write up a resolution regarding the salary increase.
The last time council passed a salary increase, they later went back and reduced the amount, according to a city source.
