The new Dallas City Manager is going to be very well paid.
The Dallas City Council decided on a base salary of $400,000 for A.C. Gonzalez after comparing salaries for top executive around the country.
Former City Manager Mary Suhm was being paid $305,00 a year when she retired last year.
Her assistant, Gonzalez, was paid $250,000 when he became Interim City Manager.
Gonzalez's new salary will make him one of the highest paid public officers in North Texas.
