Question of transparency
After reading last week’s Your Local Journal, I was blown away by the salaries paid to the employees of our city. I counted 11 persons earning more than $100,000. The city council says they are transparent but only in words. These salaries are paid with our tax money and being a town of only 20,000 persons, how do they justify so many high salaries?
I would be very interested to know the mayor's salary as well as the various department directors. What has been the percentage of increase in salaries in the last three years? I look at this administration to be very irresponsible in the way they spend our money and non-transparent on the major expenses. Why there is not a publication of the expenses building the town hall and the expenses of Au Galop? I think this administration would be a lot more credible if every expense was put on the table so that we can make a clear decision on November 5.
