Mountain View County Councillors Will Not Be Receiving A Raise In 2020
Mountain View County councillors will not be receiving a raise in 2020. Reeve Bruce Beattie says a survey done a couple of years ago showed their council compensation was significantly lower than other rural municipalities of comparable size. As a result, a policy was created to close a 10 per cent gap over a 4 year period. However, he says council decided this week to lead by example while they were approving the budget for 2020. The move by council to not accept a 2.5 per cent wage increase next year will save Mountain View County $10,000 dollars.
