City of Revelstoke pays $6.66 million in wages in 2018

Top earner was former CAO Alan Chabot

The city paid out $6.66 million in wages in 2018 according to their Statement of Financial Information.

The report, which is required annually by the province, includes a statement of assets and liabilities, a schedule of debts and other city financial statements.

A small part of that almost $7 million paid mayor and council wages.

Last years outgoing councillors were paid $12,500 each for the year, as well as expenses which varied from $435-$2,171. Mayor Mark McKee was paid $25,301.88 and $12,176 in expenses.

Councillor Scott Duke’s renumeration was reported as $12,801, higher than the others, because he received a discount for an annual pass to the community centre (available to all city staff), which is a taxable benefit.
