Big Port Moody council pay raises prompt amalgamation question
Re. “Cash for hatchery (and PM council),” (The Tri-City News, Dec. 20).
According to statistics on the city of Port Moody’s website, the average married couple and lone-parent family incomes (2005) were about $88,000 and $48,000, respectively.
If a typical councillor devotes 20 hours a week to civic tasks, as Coun. Diana Dilworth stated, then the old salary level of $25,520 would seem appropriate.
This self-serving largesse illustrates why the Tri-Cities should be amalgamated to eliminate a pair of city councils.
