BERLIN, Ala. – The Berlin Town Council at its regular monthly meeting Monday evening officially adopted a policy it has held in practice since it first convened: the body passed an ordinance declaring that the mayor and council members will work for no salary. No member has ever accepted any pay.
Bates explained that the State requires that new municipalities have an ordinance establishing salary rates at least six months before their next election.
The council is also seeking applicants for the position of town clerk. Those interested make contact through the town’s Facebook page. As of Monday’s meeting, no applications had been received. 
The Berlin Town Council will hold a special called meeting next Monday evening, Nov. 25, at 7 p.m. in the Berlin Community Center to consider options for town clerk. The public is invited to attend.
