The following chart is the salary and travel allowance provided to each board member:
The Fiscal Year 2017/18 budget includes $2,000 for travel and training and $1,000 special appropriation for discretionary spending for each Board Member. As board members, they are also eligible to participate in the Employee Health Benefits plan.
Although not a compensated item, the entire Board has city-issued iPads. The mayor (Dana Outlaw) and aldermen from Wards 2 (Jamee Harris), 3 (Bobby Aster), 4 (Johnnie Ray Kinsey) and 6 (Jeffrey Odham) have accepted city-issued cell phones. Aldermen Sabrina Bengel and Barbara Best have not opted for for city-issued cell phones.
Randy, I enjoy your commentary but the photos and charts don’t seem to show on either the mobile or computer versions. Would have liked to seen the chart on alderman pay. Has anyone else noted this?
Jon, thanks for bringing this to my attention. I have made an adjustment and tested it. You should be able to see the chart now.
Thanks, it works fine now. Happy New Year!
So with the 30% proposed raise, how much are taxes going to be raised to pay for this?
