COVINGTON - Mayor Mike Cooper may get a raise to keep his pay above his department heads' salaries next year.

During a city council meeting in September about the budget council members noticed that several city administrators' income would be more than Cooper's current salary once the 2014 budget becomes effective. The increase on the mayor's salary would be from $75,000 to $79,000.

Officials say the mayor's salary would have to be addressed in the budget and set on a different ordinance.
