Sources: See the Administrative Code of 1929, Act of April 9, 1929, P.L. 177, Section 209, as amended.
Purposes: 1. It was necessary to fix initially in the Charter the salaries of the principal officers of the City government so that the budget adopted prior to the effective date of the Charter could make provision for the compensation of officers who would have to begin service before the Council under the new Charter had had an opportunity to fix salaries and to make appropriations. It should be noted that the new Council is empowered to vary the salaries fixed and the payroll periods, should it deem a change desirable.
2. Since some City officers, notably the City Controller and the City Treasurer, receive compensation for their services, by virtue of their offices, from other agencies, and since the Charter salary scale increases, such additional compensation is credited against salaries received from the City.
