JC officials set to double salaries in new budget
Johnson City’s mayor and village administrators could receive a 100% pay raise within weeks.
Johnson City’s draft budget for the fiscal year beginning June 1 would double the salaries of village officials.
The mayor’s salary would increase from $12,000 to $24,000 per year. Proposed salaries for the four village administrators would increase from $5,000 to $10,000 per year.
Johnson City village officials say the mayor and administrators’ pay has not been adjusted in 15 years.
A public hearing on the proposed City of Johnson budget will be held at a special meeting of the board of directors at 6 p.m. Wednesday.
Some villagers strongly criticized the decision to implement a 100% wage increase in one action.
Administrator Adam Brown said he intended to vote against the big pay raise. He said that while the increases are appropriate, “doing it all at once is not justified.”
Directors John Walker and Mary Jacyna did not say whether they would vote in favor of the proposed increases. Administrator Clark Giblin and Mayor Martin Meaney could not be reached for comment on the planned increases.
