Proposals to increase the salaries for Cheyenne City Council members and the Mayor of Cheyenne are slated for consideration by the Cheyenne City Council Finance Committee on Monday.

Regardless of how the committee votes on the proposals, the full city council will have the final word on third and final reading. The proposals have already passed two readings in the council.

The ordinances would raise the mayor's annual salary from the current $95,700 per year to $110,000 annually, starting on Jan. 1, 2025. Salaries for Council members would double from the current $1,000 per month to $2,000.

However, the increase for council members would only take effect after the next election for their seat. State law prohibits elected officials from receiving a pay raise until they have either been elected or re-elected to office following the raise.

That means that while council members who are elected in November would be eligible for raises on Jan. 1, others would have to wait to receive it until after their council seat is up for election. Council members could also choose not to take the raise.

The proposed ordinances still face a third and final reading before the full city council that will decide whether they are approved.

From Bison to Triceratops - All of Wyoming's Official Things

Every state in our nation has chosen things that represent the state in one way or another to be official state things. Like a flower, or animal. Wyoming is no different.

The Equality State, or the Cowboy State, depending on which state slogan you want to go with, has a state flower. But did you know we also have a state tree and a state fish? Yes, we even have a state code.

To be an official thing, a member of the state legislature must write and submit a bill to the legislature declaring that a thing will be the official state thing. Then the legislature votes to pass the bill, or not, if it passes, the governor signs the bill into law and we have a new official state thing.

Here is what we have so far, all of Wyoming's official things. Now you can win big on Wyo Trivia Night if that's a thing that exists.
