The commission is soliciting public input through an online survey and will hold a public forum to hear from city residents from 7-8 p.m. Thursday, May 11 in the Mayor and Council chambers at City Hall, 111 Maryland Ave.

The survey and May 11 public forum will ask residents to answer the question: “Do you believe that the current compensation for Mayor and Council is reasonable? If not, please explain. Currently, the annual stipend is $37,560 for the mayor and $30,483 for councilmembers.”

City residents can also answer the question using the survey at, where they can learn more about Mayor and Council compensation and about the commission.

The commission’s five members must be City of Rockville residents or have a place of business in the city. By ordinance, the commission is required to convene every four years and provide a recommendation to the Mayor and Council by June 30. Any change in compensation would not take effect until after the following election.
