SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - The San Diego City Council has rejected a proposal to more than double their salaries.

The city's Salary Setting Commission proposed raising their current salaries from $75,000 to $175,000. The Mayor would have received $235,000. That's up significantly from his current $100,000 a year.

Council members unanimously voted down the proposal, which would have given them their first pay raise in nine years.
