Several commenters last week requested data on council compensation. Mayor Robb Davis indicated that he had requested this information and would get it out as soon as possible.
Mayor Davis has now provided his compensation data to the Vanguard.
His total compensation from the city (or the total cost to the city) is $20,925 per year.
Broken down that is:
- $13,655.98 in gross pay.
- $780 for phone stipend.
- $6000 from health cafeteria cash out (since, according to Robb, “I do not use City health insurance”). All $6000 is deferred into a 457 account.
- $213.12 for life insurance imputed income.
- $276 for life insurance premium.
“I pay $1455.89 into a PARS retirement account (in lieu of Social Security taxes) and $213.12 into Medicare from my gross pay.”
Robb Davis told the Vanguard: “Again, the cost to the City for the Mayor is $20,925.
“The City also paid for me to attend the NACOLE conference. That was approximately $2000 I think.”
