Mayor Dodic and some councillors are fond of comparing their remuneration to those of other Alberta cities when they feel a need for a pay raise, i.e. we're falling behind others so it is time for a pay hike.
I have a novel idea. Why not tie pay increases to performance? How many of those council members oversaw upwards of eight-per-cent tax increases since 2000; how many oversaw $30 million of taxpayers' money "invested" and rendered unusable for seven years at best, or outright lost forever; how many have lost close to $1 million after purchasing the 1 Avenue South property and sitting on it for 10 years? The list goes on.
Yes, I think I'd like to see pay increases tied to performance. I hope I didn't hurt the mayor's feelings.
