Council’s remuneration disclosed by Treasurer

May 21, 2014   ·   0 Comments

By James Matthews – Orangeville’s treasurer submitted during council’s last meeting a detailed list of remuneration paid to elected municipal officials last year.

As per the Municipal Act, the list included expenses paid in the previous year to each council member or a member of a local board. It includes any member of a local board for whom remuneration was provided or for whom expenses were reimbursed.

The legislation also requires that the statement identify the authorization for the provision of remuneration or the reimbursement of expenses. While a summary statement of council remuneration was provided as part of the Council Remuneration Review Committee Report in November 2013, the statement was not provided in the correct format.

The reconciled list includes salary and expenses.

Mayor Rob Adams sits on the Dufferin County Council, the Orangeville Police Services Board, and the Orangeville Hydro board. His services netted him a total of $65,536.

Deputy Mayor Warren Maycock also serves on town and county councils, and the police services and hydro boards. He tallied $48,596 in salary and expense reimbursements.

Councillor Gail Campbell represents the town with Credit Valley Conservation in addition to her duties on council. She earned a combined $23,439.

Councillor Sylvia Bradley was paid $20,131 for work on council, Coun. Mary Rose earned $21,495 on council, and Coun. Scott Wilson and Coun. Jeremy Williams each earned $15,989 and $16,223 respectively as part of the municipal government.

Other salaried members of the Orangeville Police Services Board include Cynthia Rayburn who earned $26,335, including expenses; L. Anne Welwood and Joanne Jordan, who each earned $3,740; Joanne Glazier, who was paid $18,501 with expenses; and Lynda Addy earned $520 of salary and expenses.

Other non-salaried, volunteer members of the various boards earned a total of $1,559.
