GREEN: After several meetings discussing the issue, City Council has agreed to grant $1,500 stipends to appointed members of both the Civil Service Commission and the Design Review Board.


Payments will begin Oct. 1, the council said in approving the issue this week.


The council initially considered the increase for the Civil Service Commission because the group is a decision-making body.


Ward 2 Councilman Dave France asked the administration to consider whether other unpaid volunteer boards should be included in the payments.


Mayor Dick Norton and Jeanne Greco, Human Resources manager, then recommended to the council that the Design Review Board also receive the stipend.
