Rolling Meadows City Manager Barry Krumstok received a vote of confidence in the form of a new three-year contract and a small raise Monday night.
Without comment, the city council approved the contract that includes a salary of $140,895. His first contract as city manager in 2011 was for two years.
Krumstok said his new contract represents a 1 percent salary increase over the first one. He received no raise in 2012.
Krumstok was assistant city manager from 2006 until late in 2010, when he became acting city manager upon the resignation of Sarah Phillips. She resigned after two years and received severance pay under an agreement that officials would not discuss. Krumstok's salary when he received the official promotion in March 2011 was $139,500, $1,000 higher than Phillips'.
"Probably the hardest-working guy in city hall is Barry Krumstok," Mayor Tom Rooney said after the meeting. "I wasn't here then, but I do recall there was kind of a sense the when he was made a city manager, 'Let's see how he'll do.' He's doing very well for us."
Rooney said the extension and the salary increase represented the only major changes in Krumstok's contract.
