Town manager gets increase in salary

Staff Writer

Pagosa Springs’ town manager David Mitchem presented a request for a cost of living increase to his salary at the Tuesday night town council meeting.

According to Mitchem’s documentation, the town council approved a salary plan in 2013 that included cost of living increases for all of the town’s staff. These raises were based on the 2012 Denver/Boulder Consumer Price Index (CPI), which saw an increase of 1.934 percent that year.

    Instead of merely stating the percentage increase, you should reveal the actual salary. Other papers, like The Aspen Times, lists all city and county employees, their position and their salaries every year. Now, that’s transparency, something which we don’t have.
