Councillors Award Themselves Pay Rise Of 14.5%

Recommended Posts

http://www.burtonmail.co.uk/detail.asp?cat...News&id=6221636

MEMBERS of Staffordshire County Council are set to award themselves an inflation-busting 14.5 per cent pay increase — with an East Staffordshire representative getting even more.

At least we know where some of the inflation-busting council tax rises are going. It could be worse, they might have spent the extra cash on essential services or some other nonsense.

Conservative councillors voted overwhelmingly in favour of the 18.65 per cent rise in their allowances at last month's full council meeting.

:o

I notice they had a cunning plan to get their 5% council tax rise through.

They threatened to cut funding from Dial-a-ride and privatise the Milton Road baths.

Maybe they could sack some of the Deputy Directors on 80 grand they advertised for last year instead.

Councillors don't actually get paid per se, that why the hikes seem large

having your allowance go from £1500 to £2500 is not much of an increase in money terms, but it is % wise

if you look the actual pay rises are around 3.1%

Define 'allowance'? Who monitors what it's spent on?

I say cap council tax rises to a true measure of inflation. That would sort things out.
