At the Regular Council meeting on January 4,2005, Bylaw 492,2005 was received and accepted unanimously for the first three readings. This bylaw is done annually to establish Council Salaries and Expense rates for the year. One notable item in this years bylaw is the increase of salary for the position of Mayor from $14,084 to $26,000 per annum, an 85% increase. The bylaw will receive final reading and approval at the January 17th council meeting. Is this REASONABLE? Is this RESPONSIBLE? Is this REQUIRED? Is this RESPECTFUL of the taxpayers? What additional benefits does the community receive for this increase? Contact 242-4242 for answers.
