CMC raises its councilors’ allowance Featured

SLPP councilors of the Colombo Municipal Council have supported a proposal by mayor Rosie Senanayake to raise allowances for the councilors.

Only the six JVP councilors voted against the proposal at a vote.

Increased payments for councilors means the CMC’s monthly expenditure goes up by Rs. 1.4 million.

The payment for telephone, travelling, stamp and postal costs gets increased from Rs. 13,000 to Rs. 25,000.

The CMC has 119 councilors.
