Top City of Revelstoke pay packet hits $127,490

16 City of Revelstoke employees passed $75,000 salary threshold this year; senior managers, firefighters dominate list

City of Revelstoke Chief Administrative Officer Tim Palmer led city staff with the heftiest pay package in 2012, earning $127,490 in remuneration and $9,668 in expenses for a total cost of $137,158.

The City of Revelstoke is required by provincial authorities to list city staff earning more than $75,000 each year as part of their annual reporting requirements, although the city routinely omits these number from an initial draft of their annual report. This year, the Times Review again requested a look at taxpayer-funded salaries over $75,000.

We learned 16 City of Revelstoke employees topped the $75,000 threshold in 2012.

In second place, former Director of Planning John Guenther earned $111,984 in remuneration (which includes salary and benefits) and filed $4,878 in expenses for a total of $118,862.

In third place was a city firefighter who earned $102,752.

In fourth place, Director of Finance Graham Inglis earned $97,898 plus $4,934 in expenses, totalling $102,832.

City utilities foreman Doug Pendergast earned $93,354. Next came three firefighters who earned between $90,702 and $93,093; their names were not included on the list. The fire chief was ninth with a salary of $90,052 plus $2,977 in expenses for a total of $93,029.

In 10th was Deputy Director of Finance Tania McCabe, who earned $87,032, plus $1,000 in expenses, totalling $88,032.
