LA CROSSE, Wis. -

City Council members in La Crosse are considering giving themselves a raise.

At the Committee of the Whole meeting Tuesday night, council members voted on two related issues; one on base salary, the other for expense accounts.

The first proposal would double the salaries from $200 a month to $400. That was recommended to be approved with a nine to five vote.  It would take effect for the Spring 2015 term.

The second would impact the $150 council member allowance to cover supplies needed like Internet and printers.

The recommendation to add 25 dollars was also approved with a 10 to four vote.
