Very good move CCH. 10 alderman for a city of 16,000 is preposterous. It'll be interesting to see who the final five are. I'm not certain if it's plausible, doable, or already planned, but the five positions should be opened up to other residents of CCH'S interested in serving their communities. Now it's time to cut the mayor's salary.

Why would there be 5? With the mayor that makes 6 altogether. Wouldn't that lead to ties in votes? Normally it's 6 trustees and 1 mayor.

What is your mayor's salary? Is he part time or fulltime?
