Regional District directors discuss raise

  • Aug. 17, 2011 5:00 p.m.

Skeena-Queen Charlotte regional district directors will be discussing a possible pay raise when they meet this Friday in Prince Rupert (Aug. 19). The agenda for the meeting includes a proposal, prepared by treasurer Jennifer Robb, to increase directors’ remuneration in line with inflation. It also includes a proposal to deal with the issue raised by the fact that some directors are collecting benefits like MSP and Blue Cross, paid for by the regional district, while other directors do not. The Blue Cross benefits cost more than $2,000 a year, per director, while MSP premiums can amount to over $1,000 a year. The proposal would increase overall remuneration, then subtract the benefit amounts from the remuneration of the directors who want them. Also on the agenda is a presentation from Perry Cook, the BC project manager for Galaxy Broadband, and letters about cell phone coverage in Port Clements.
