Mayor-elect Jean Stothert will ask her fellow Omaha City Council members on Tuesday to approve a cut to her salary.
Stothert proposed to cut the mayor's salary by 10 percent from 2014 to 2018. City attorneys said that would decrease the mayor's salary by $11,368 each year.
If approved, Stothert's annual salary would be $102,312 for the four-year period. The salary is set by city ordinance.
The southwest Omaha representative and mayor-elect promised voters she'd start to reduce city spending by making cuts in the Mayor's Office.
Marty Bilek, chief deputy of the Douglas County Sheriff's Office and Stothert's pick as chief of staff, will be paid $112,500. That's a reduction from the $125,000 budgeted this year for Steve Oltmans, Mayor Jim Suttle's chief of staff.
