The Hempstead Town board unanimously approved raises for the town supervisor and councilmembers after a public hearing at a board meeting Tuesday morning.
The board approved a measure that increases Supervisor Kate Murray’s salary to $160,000 from $150,000 per year, a 6.67 percent raise. The other six town board members would go from making $66,000 per year to $71,000, a 7.58 percent raise.
The supervisor and town board members haven’t had a salary increase since early 2010, town officials said.
