By access to information, the Director General of the MRC Pontiac earns about $85,000 yearly. DG’s receive 17%, or so, of additional benefits. The MRC also has an assistant DG whose income is not much lower. Next in line are the highly paid, and increasing in numbers, MRC Pontiac   management staff.

This enormous tax burden is strongly supported by mayors who direct the MRC. Pay raises are automatic. By inaction, most councillors also support this ‘system.’ Do the mayors consider it too much work to provide a performance evaluation for DG? During a recession, what would they do if a salary freeze were suggested?
The median income for a Campbell’s Bay resident is just under $25,000. After the November elections the first order of business for the mayors will be the budget for 2014-2015. How much of an increase in remuneration do you think they will determine for themselves?
