Below is a recent Letter to the Editor from the the Daily News dated May 13, 2015. You can read it for yourself. Does the writer imply the $117,000 is simply a salary or a number including benefits or funds to include other village staff employees? His statement is too general to know just what he intends to tell the reader. Do you wonder where the truth lies?
Next you will see a page from the 2015 Village of Richfield budget for the Village Administrator Expenditure Budget. Where do you see anything about $117,000. Where does the truth lie?
The Staff Performance Incentives line is placed in this section of the budget so the Administrator can allocate it during the year if staff warrants a salary increase which is approved by the Village Board. That section reduces the total amount allocated to this portion of budget to $108,502.00. NOT QUITE MATCHING $117,000 AS SUGGESTED IN THE LETTER TO THE EDITOR. Where does the truth lie?
And yes, someone has to speak up and tell the truth and not worry about being subjected to a disgusting character assassination. Does the truth lie? Probably not.
