At the Federal rate of 55 cents,$300 pays for 500+ miles. of driving per month per council member

I do not believe they travel the streets of Carlsbad to this degree, thus the payment amounts to a non taxed salary increase

so much for volunteerism.....

People who do part time jobs need to be paid a part time salary! We need to attract better people to want this position! Tony Williams and Matin Mills are just not going to cut it! We need to provide some kind of incentive! To get quality people to be in charge of the 80 million dollar budget!
