San Jose City Council members Tuesday rejected a five-percent pay raise and the mayor also declined a salary hike.

Mayor Chuck Reed's salary remains at $105,000. He has declined all approved salary increases since becoming mayor in 2007.

The current salary for mayor is $114,000 with a $350 monthly vehicle allowance. Mayor Reed does not take that allowance.

The mayor's approved pay would have jumped to nearly $120,000 if he accepted Tuesday's increase.
