Raise for DD council
by Simon Conolly
Douro-Dummer’s next council – which will take office December 1 – will be better paid than its predecessor.
Council agreed at its Tuesday meeting to increase the Mayor’s compensation by $4,000, the Deputy Mayor’s by $3,500, and the three councillors by $3,000 each.
The increases will bring Douro-Dummer’s compensation package in line with other county municipalities, excepting Trent Lakes.
It was generally felt that Douro-Dummer – which had not had an increase for the past three years –was falling behind other area municipalities.
