Where Some Of YOUR Tax Dollars Go

The above chart is the organizational chart as presented in the City of Nanaimo Financial Plan for the period 2012 - 2016, with dollar figures added for each position.

It should be noted that most of these numbers are understated from what they actually are because the source data is about 12 months out of date. I intend to update the chart as new data is made available.

You can bet that since the recent settlement of 6% over three years and a hefty increase in some benefits for unionized staff, the exempt city staff will also see their pay packets increased as well.

The number noted above 'Mayor and Council' is for 8 Councilors and the Mayor and includes their old wage scale plus a taxable benefit which not all Councilors take advantage of. It is noteworthy that the single position of City Manager is equal to 72% of the cost for the Mayor and 8 Councilors. Just sayin' ............
