When a card is auctioned in the notary phase and nobody increases the auctioning player's initial bid, then 1 to 3 money cards are being drawn, depending on the building type. These cards form the mayor's bid which has to be beaten by the auctioning player in order to get the building.
Question:
How is the value of the mayor's bid calculated? Is it always the highest possible number?
Example: The mayor draws three green cards, with numbers 1, 2 and 3.
Is the resulting mayor's bid 6 (simply adding the numbers) or 10 (three cards of the same colour)?
The latter option would feel right and we used it in our games.

We also used the last option, rules are not clear. Just as you said; seems to make most sense.
