Ashcroft Council approves raise

Ashcroft Council approved an increase in their annual remuneration at Monday night’s meeting.

Council Remuneration & Expenses no longer needs to be approved as a bylaw: it is now a policy that can be modified more easily.

The new policy, No. 1.4, was approved by Mayor Andy Anderson and councillors Jerry Fiddick and Doreen Lambert. Coun. Alice Durksen was also in attendance; Coun. Helen Kormendy was not at the meeting.

In 2012, the Mayor received $9,600 annually in addition to expenses; councillors received $6,000 in addition to expenses.

Under the new policy, the Mayor will now receive $13,543 annually plus expenses up to $4,000; and councillors will receive $7,326 annually plus expenses up to $3,000.
