Last month we reported that most elected officials --13 were keeping a 1.3 percent cost-of-living pay increase this year, but one elected official contacted us to say he has declined his.

Register of Wills Ronald Donatucci told us he wrote a $7,500 check to the city. We reported Donatucci as one of the elected officials that was keeping the raise. Donatucci, who was enrolled in the controversial Deferred Retirement Option Plan (DROP), said he made a committment when he ran for reelection last year to return some of that money to the city over the next four years.

We also reported that Mayor Nutter and 10 others declined the pay increase.
