CAPE CORAL, Fla - A special city council meeting is underway.

The meeting will discuss a series of money related topics, which include giving the Mayor's assistant a 5% raise.

She hasn't had a raise in several years and the mayor says she is underpaid for the job she does.

Also on the table for discussion is 11 Cape police officers who received higher salaries for college credits they didn't have.

The council will weigh in on this issue as well as a tentative lawsuit settlement Mayor Sullivan and Councilman Bill Deile have against the UEP.

The Mayor would get a dollar and Deile would get $5,000.

At the start of the meeting the council did something that wasn't on the agenda, they took a vote of confidence in Councilmember Derrick Donnell.

Donnell was suspended from his job as principal at ALC West last week.

The allegations have to do with Donnell being dishonest.

Before the vote of confidence, the council stated they know Donnell to be a man of integrity.
