Cincinnati City Manager Milton Dohoney's base salary is increasing to $255,000 per year. The full city council by a 6-2 vote approved the raise Thursday along with a one-time bonus of nearly $35,000.

The manager's spending plan will outline his ideas for closing a general fund deficit that has been reported to be between $34 and $40 million.
