No rise in top man’s salary


Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - City Of South Perth - Su­sanne Reilly

DE­SPITE the chief ex­ec­u­tive of the neigh­bour­ing Town of Vic­to­ria Park re­ceiv­ing a $30,000 pay rise be­tween the 2012-13 and 2013-14 fi­nan­cial years, City of South Perth’s chief ex­ec­u­tive Cliff Frew­ing stayed level on a salary of about $215,000.

Re­leased in De­cem­ber, the City’s 2013-14 an­nual re­port shows that the one em­ployee in the top salary band of $210,000-220,000 is the chief ex­ec­u­tive, the same band he was in dur­ing the 2012-13 fi­nan­cial year.

While his salary stayed level, South Perth’s ex­ec­u­tive team went from a seven- fe­male, five-male team in 2012-13 to a sev­en­male, five-fe­male team in 2013-14.

In 2013-14, coun­cil mem­bers’ meet­ing attendance fees bal­looned from $98,000 in 2012-13 to a whop­ping $232,230, al­beit less than the $234,833 bud­geted for the year.

As of July 2013, the Salaries and Al- lowances Tri­bunal de­ter­mined that meet­ing fees for elected mem­bers should in­crease to at­tract ca­pa­ble and com­mit­ted can­di­dates.

The coun­cil­lors’ lo­cal gov­ern­ment al­lowances stayed rel­a­tively level about the $66,000 mark but ‘other ex­penses’, which was a new cat­e­gory in the 2013-14 re­port, stood at $248,940.
