Parkes Councillors wage increase

Parkes Shire Councillors have chosen the maximum allowable annual wage increase of 4.2% for the 2011-2012 financial year.

This means councillors will see an increase of $400 while the Mayor, Ken Keith, will receive an extra $1,280.

This brings the total income for councillors and the mayor to $9,970 and $31,740 respectively.

General Manager at Parkes Shire, Kent Boyd, said the 4.2% raise was in line with normal wage increases.

“The allowable wage increase is set by the Local Government Remuneration Tribunal and it’s up to councillors to decide [whether they will take it].”
