Mountain View is 1/10th the size of San Jose, California. For the city to pay its City Manager more than his counterpart in San Jose is a shame. This is just another good reason why "ALL" city services should be outsourced. It would be similar to a corporation hiring a property management firm to manage its properties. It would be at a fixed cost and there would not be any retirement packages to payout for years to come.............."Just Think About It"...................

By the time the average citizen figures out what has been going on, all these "public" employees will retire and leave us all with a heavy burden to fund their retirements. They've been cooking the books in the back room for so long just knowing that the public will never figure it out until it's too late.

It is just sad that the city manager is getting paid this much and still there are layoffs and not filling open positions. All the economist say the way to recovery is for employment. You would think that a government would do the right thing and make sure all their spots are filled so people are working.
