Steve Adler, mayor of Austin 2015-2022, filed eight voluntary waivers to in most years accept no 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 the council office, including staff costs.
Additional information obtained through a public information request indicates that over a period of eight years in office, as a result of his salary decisions, his office received an additional $562,273 for operational expenses.
