City manager, attorney and clerk get raises

 

On Tuesday the City Council approved raises for the three employees the council hires to oversee the daily functioning of the city's government.

"We do not have performance issues at all," said Mayor John Inks before the council unanimously approved the raises on Tuesday for the city clerk, city attorney and city manager. "The city has enormous talent."

City Manager Dan Rich saw his salary go from $240,000 a year to $249,696, the result of a 2 percent cost of living adjustment (COLA) which all city staff got this year as well as a 2 percent merit increase. City Clerk Lorrie Brewer got the same merit and COLA pay raise rate, from $127,205 to $132,344.

City Attorney Jannie Quinn got a slightly higher merit increase - 3 percent - raising her pay from $215,000 to $225,879.

Should of went to work for the city, with salaries like that.

Kids, get your foot in the city door and you are set for life.
Retire at 50, keep your salary as pension, plus your medical.

Must be nice.

All this in a town where the median income is around $79K per year.

Hogs at the trough. The city will default on those pensions by 2020. Guaranteed.
