How Your Council is Paid

There is a report on January 28 Council agenda reviewing a proposed change in remuneration paid to Council members.  As reported an increase in gross is proposed which will translate to a zero change in net pay.  The change is recommended as the way to address the accounting change required by Federal legislation (Bill C 44).  The latter included the elimination of treating one third of Council remuneration as a non-accountable expense allowance.  I think the proposal is appropriate; and I agree with not mixing in this adjustment with any other salary adjustment.
