Cuyahoga County Council voted Tuesday night to approve its own 15.5 percent pay hike.

The issue would raise council salaries from $45,000 to $52,000, beginning in 2019.

The 11-member council didn’t reach a unanimous decision.

Jack Schron was among the few members who voted no, citing the economy as his reason.

“It’s still going through early stages of recovery, and I think it sets a bad visual impression for those suffering economically in our county,” said Shron.

Council members say their duties require full-time effort, not the part-time hours charter writers envisioned when the new government was formed in the wake of the Cuyahoga County corruption scandal.
