RDCK directors punt proposed wage increase into next month

Area D Director Aimee Watson made a motion that staff look at the impact of spreading the 20-per-cent increase over two years.

Directors of the Regional District of the Central Kootenay have asked staff to look further into the idea of how they can give themselves a wage increase of up to 20 per cent in the next few years.

The directors asked staff in January to study the impact of a 20-per-cent wage increase on this year’s budget. Directors hope to make a decision before finalizing this year’s budget in April.
