The Mettawa mayor is a volunteer. The Civil Service Commission -- which hears employee appeals of discipline and other matters -- pays $25,300.

Urlacher's campaign website says he is in excavating and construction.

He also played the gridiron professionally, suiting up for the Bears in 2003 and on two other pro teams outside the National Football League.
