Ora Houston, who served as a city council member 2015-2018, filed two voluntary waivers to accept a reduced salary, per Ordinance No. 20150212-017. The amount of salary waived—plus the city’s portion of employment taxes applicable to the waived salary—could be used by the council member for the municipal purpose of operating her council office, including staff salaries.
Additional information obtained through a public information request indicates that as a result of Houston’s salary decisions, her council office received an additional $145,466 for operational expenses.
