Are you sure you really want to go there? I mean, you are aware that the budget for Frisco's City Council expenses, which are almost twice as high as a city like Lewisville's, went up by 5.62% in the last year, right? (see p. 53, "General Government Department Summary", Frisco 2012 Budget PDF) According to page 63 of that document, council members are paid a $350 monthly. So if you take $350 x 12 = $4,200, that's how much Fallon is getting before he even requests anything. $4,200 per councilmember x seven councilmembers = $29,400 for stipends. That leaves about $93k in expense money for the council, which is at least $13k per councilmember for expenditures after they've received a stipend.
