Pay process pursued

Currently, RDNO are compensated for attending some meetings, while others are considered free.

The Regional District of North Okanagan could bring some consistency to politicians’ pay.

Currently, officials are compensated for attending some meetings and external agencies, while others are considered free.

“We have directors travelling to meetings at a fair distance with no mileage or compensation,” said Bob Fleming, Electoral Area Advisory Committee chairperson.

As an example, the RDNO representative to the Shuswap Water Council is not paid for being at the meetings in Salmon Arm.

“Staff has been asked for some information on this,” said Fleming.

A possibility is rewording policies.

“We could clarify what is compensated and what is not,” said David Sewell, chief administrative officer.
