Newington ON – Are the Counties NUTS? What on earth justifies a $8000.00 a year increase?
This past October the Counties passed a by-law increasing the honorarium for the Wardens position from $19,159 to $27,000 that’s almost an $8,000 increase.
Members of Council will receive an honorarium of $10,000 from what use to be $8,515, basically $1,500 more, that’s not as bad.
Wake up everyone we are in a recession! Medium and small businesses are barely hanging on, many are closing their doors. No wonder there is so much apathy when it comes to voting. People are fed up with government spending. Fiscal responsibility starts at the top and the Counties aren’t setting a good example.
