In Saturday’s article on the Wilmington City Council meeting, it was incorrectly reported regarding the second reading of the ordinance that councilmembers’ salaries would be increased to $8,362 per year and would increase to $9,119 per year by 2027.

If the ordinance passes, beginning next election cycle, elected officials and salaried appointed officials’ pay would be set at $5,354 per year. Any future increases would be reviewed every two to three years, according to Councilmember Matt Purkey.

We apologize for the error.
