The compensation of each member of the Council of the Borough of West Mifflin shall be equal to the maximum amount allowed a member of Council of the Borough of West Mifflin as was authorized by Act No. 58 of 1995, enacted October 31, 1995, which amended 53 P.S. § 46001 of the "Borough Code."

The compensation of each Council member and the President of Council shall be payable monthly from the general fund of the Borough.
