Excerpts:The Capital Regional District has approved up to $200,000 in additional compensation for the sewage treatment project board chair and vice-chair even though some directors complained they didn’t have enough information to justify the expense....Saanich Mayor Richard Atwell recommended the decision be postponed until the board had more information, including the amount of per diems and expenses paid to date....He noted that the $20,000 is in addition to the honoraria paid to board members....Stan Bartlett of the Grumpy Taxpayer$ of Greater Victoria group agreed. “The question here is about process. You don’t do business that way,” Bartlett said. “You don’t do business that way with that amount of money involved. You have all the facts and figures and details in front of you, and you make a decision.”Sewage board leaders to get $20,000 a month:
Have to agree with Atwell and other on this one. Either the per diem and miscellaneous expenses are exceeding the $20K a month and thus we are getting a good deal capping the fees or they/we are not. No reason why staff / board members wouldn't know this before making the request. Since they are not saying then one would have to think that we would bee better to honour the agreement that we have.
