Wages and Election Polls

A big question has been What do they earn? This answers that question and more.

Mayor = $139,559

Deputy Mayor = $91,815

Councillor = $80,797

Plus Car, phone and computer.

These wages are not conditional upon number of hours performed in the role.

That’s the Politically correct way of putting – no time sheets are required, its not like the ‘standard’ work contract with minimum required is a 38 hour working week. Some Councillors may do more hours (40hrs)than others(15hrs) yet still get paid the same. I guess it will come down to work ethic.
