MOOSE JAW – The City of Moose Jaw is undertaking a review of the Remuneration Bylaw affecting elected officials and is asking for public input.
In 2019, City Council approved a motion to appoint a three-member panel to review the compensation (salary and benefits) received by City of Moose Jaw elected officials (Mayor and City Council members). The panel consists of Greg McIntyre (Moose Jaw & District Chamber of Commerce), Brenda Berry (Moose Jaw & District Labour Council) and City of Moose Jaw Clerk/Solicitor Myron Gulka-Tiechko.
As part of the review, the City has created a public survey asking for feedback. The survey provides background on the subject and details on how Moose Jaw compares to other smaller cities in Saskatchewan as it pertains to remuneration.
The survey will be active through January 28, 2020 and can be accessed at: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/CityMJRemunerationSurvey.
In addition to the survey, Moose Jaw residents are invited to have their feelings on the subject known at a special meeting of the review panel on Wednesday, January 22, 2020, beginning at 5:30 p.m. in the Scoop Lewry Room, 2nd Floor of City Hall. Residents may present written or oral statements at the meeting.
The panel will also consult with former Moose Jaw Mayors and City Councillors as part of the review. Following the review period, the panel will draft recommendations to be voted on by the current Mayor and Council. Any approved recommendations would come into effect following the next Municipal Election, scheduled for November 9, 2020.
