During a time when City Council is tightening it’s belt after several costly human resources boondoggles that cost Cornwall tax payers millions of dollars, it is frustrating to know that City Council will pay up to $10,000 to hire a consultant and determine whether or not Council deserves a possible pay raise.
It should be noted that several years ago City Council ignored a recommendation by the Compensation Review Committee to base any pay increases on the Consumer Price Index (CPI) of the previous year.
This would be a simple, fair, transparent and consistent way to regulate any future pay increases.
Here is a web link to the recommendation Council ignored in 2010:
Perhaps City Council should re-consider the 2010 recommendation instead of wasting more tax payer money.
