Tyler city manager receives pay raise

Posted: Updated:

TYLER (TYLER MORNING TELEGRAPH) - Tyler City Council this morning voted to renew City Manager Mark McDaniel's contact and increase his annual salary to $195,000.

McDaniel, who has been with the city for eight years, had previously made a $178,500 annual salary, along with an additional $10,000 per year performance bonus, which brought his total salary to $188,500 Susan Guthrie, city spokeswoman said after the meeting. He also receives an increase in his auto allowance to $7,000 per year from $6,300 per year.
Council announced the decision after meeting in executive session.

The city will now roll the $10,000 per year performance bonus into McDaniel's annual salary.

Mayor Barbara Bass, along with city council members, praised McDaniel's leadership skills, and called him "the best city manager in the state." Mayor Bass said that most cities now roll that performance bonus into a city leader's annual salary.

McDaniel had declined pay increases as the city weathered some difficult economic times in the past few years, officials have said in the past.

He has more than 25 years experience in municipal management and holds two degrees, plus successful completion of the Senior Executive in Local Government Program at Harvard University.
