Danville School Board members gave themselves a raise Friday morning, though it was smaller than originally proposed.
The board approved raising members' salaries to $5,000. The chairman will be paid $6,000. The original proposal would have raised members' salaries to $10,000. Chairman Ed Polhamus says public input helped form the decision.
Danville school board members currently are paid $600 a year. That figure was set in the 1950's, according to board members.
