OBITUARIES: Sept. 10, 2014

BRIEFLY: Administrator pay dropped to $36K

Written by Observer Upload September 10, 2014 10:26 am

ELGIN — Elgin City Council decided to lower the starting pay for the city administrator position from $58,000 to $36,000.

The city administrator position is up for re-election this November as City Administrator Laird Allen will not run for election.

“Why start them at the top of the pile?” City Councilwoman Kathy Warren questioned. “They may not have any previous experience. The last elected official did not know what she was doing.”

One argument brought up that someone may not want to run for election if the position paid only $36,000.

That seemed a favorable outcome because, most of the council argued, if there is no one running for that position then it’s up to the council to hire someone to fill the vacancy.

Warren said someone with 12 years of city administrator experience can run against someone with no experience and it’s up to voters who to choose. 

“You can’t fire someone who’s in an elected position,” Warren said.
