Departed Chief Administrative Officer Tim Palmer led the way in City of Revelstoke pay last year, taking home more than $140,000.
Palmer, who retired from the city in February, earned $142,258.94 last year, the most of any city employee, according to the city’s Statement of Financial Information (SOFI) released on Friday.
The SOFI lists all city employees who earned more than $75,000 last year. The city is required to make it available it by law. Eighteen employees made the list, includes all department managers, five firefighters, and several public works personnel.
Mike Thomas, the director of engineering and development services, was the second highest paid employee, earning $121,591.19.
After that, five of the next eight spots are occupied by firefighters, whose salaries ranged from $95,099.60 to $118,613.43. Remuneration for firefighters was down from 2013, when they received a significant bump due to retroactive pay raises in their labour contract.
Graham Inglis, the director of finance, and firefighters Dan Hutchison and Dwayne Voykin completed the list of employees who made more than $100,000 last year.
Palmer’s compensation was actually down about $1,000 from the previous year.
This year’s list identifies employees by name instead of job title, as was done in the past.
