DETROIT (My TV 20 News at 10) - Electing a new council president wasn’t the only thing on council’s mind Tuesday.
How much the new police chief will make a year was another hot topic.
Council member’s voted down a resolution, that, if approved, would have allowed chief James Craig to have an annual salary range from $140,000 to $225,000.
Council says Craig, who officially started yesterday, is still negotiating his salary with the city.
While council voted down the high pay, the emergency financial manager can override it.
