Does RH need alternative ways for determining Council compensation? Here are some facts!

Local & Regional Councillor Perrelli is bringing forth a motion (14.3) at the December 18th Council meeting to direct staff to report back with alternatives for determining Council compensation.

The question is why?

In 2017 RH struck a Council Compensation Review Committee composed of five citizen members to make recommendations for the December 1, 2018 – November 14, 2022 Term of Office. At the March 26, 2018 Council meeting Council accepted the recommendations made by the committee.

Why tie up RH staff’s time now to come up with alternatives for determining Council compensation when Council compensation is set until November 2022?

The Council Compensation Review Committee completed an extensive and comprehensive review using a range of factors in line with how other municipalities determine their Council compensation.

The Association of Municipal Managers, Clerks and Treasurers of Ontario (AMCTO) Report on Municipal Council Compensation in Ontario published in March 2018 shows that the large majority of municipalities use a range of factors to help set their compensation levels. The most common practice is to survey the compensation paid by neighbouring municipalities.

So why direct RH staff to report back with alternatives for determining Council compensation?
