Cambridge city councillors voted to raise salaries at a meeting Tuesday night.
Effective in January, the annual salary for a city councillor will go to $41,000, up from just under $38,000.
The mayor’s salary will go from a little more than $93,000 to $101,000 a year.
The salary bump is meant to make up for a federal government decision that eliminated a one-third tax exemption for expense allowances for those holding municipal office.
