AGO 1953 NO. 473 > Jan 30 1953

The change of classification of a city by virtue of an increase in population between the time of election and the expiration of the term for which the officer was elected does not create a basis for increase in remuneration of that officer, and any such proposed increase would be in conflict with the Constitution of the State of Washington.
