Wauwatosa — The Common Council's Committee on Employee Relations will resume Tuesday its discussion of the compensation and duties of the office of mayor.

The full council would have to approve any changes.

However, considering the salary of the mayor and the city administrator, Wauwatosa ranked in the middle of comparable cities.
