Council agrees on new remuneration pool

Council agrees on new remuneration pool

Waitakere City Council has recommended how a new salary package of $1,026,872 - set by the Remuneration Authority - should be distributed among elected members. The recommendation will now be sent to Authority for final approval. The Authority sets the salary packages available to all councils and councils recommend how their package should be distributed.

In Waitakere's case the Authority set the Mayor’s total remuneration at $126,457 including a motor vehicle. This is an increase of $6,312. The Deputy Mayor's remuneration, however, has been reduced by $2,089 - from $71,640 to $69,551- because she no longer chairs the City Development Committee in addition to to her deputy mayoral duties. If the new package is adopted, Standing committee chairs will receive $66,390 and the chairs of Hearings, the Projects Special and the Arts and Events Special Committees, $56,431. Other councillors receive $45,689 , community board chairs $21,498 and community board members, $11,065.

The salary package is effective from 1 July 2005.
