Changing the subject but still concerning our executive board members,I see they are looking at ways to save money but can anyone tell me what kind of pensions do the executives get and also other council workers,in any other walk of life the individual has ended up paying more for their pension,So can anyone tell me what has happened within our council?
Someone on the Forums mentioned pension payments for Councillors, the end column of the allowances list shows those who pay towards a pension, assume figure shown is the Council contribution rather than Councillor. Someone will clairify if that is wrong .
MP — many people do have free car parking in work but why with the Council is it only the highest paid that get the ‘perk’ – as an income generation for the Council to save services being cut every ‘private’ business car parking space should have a levy tax — most private car parking spaces in Wrexham cost between aprox £1000 and £1400 a year — surely the land owner would not miss a 10/20% car parking tax!
Good pay for good work is a valid point — how come then there does not seem to be any appropriate check of ‘good work’ — many Councillors hardly ever turn up to meetings and even more appear to be struck dumb as their contributions are nil — perhaps a more structured performance pay system based on actual effort and contribution would be more meaningful — reward the more active and cut back on the non-performers.
Becoming a Councillor may be open to everyone but so many people are disillusioned with the arrangements that they don’t see any value in the role.
