CVRD director salaries and expense accounts released

Ever wonder how much our elected officials rake in?

The Cowichan Valley Regional District’s 2010 financial statements audit report, released Wednesday, can tell you.

Chairwoman Gerry Giles, naturally, brings in the most dough at $31,400.

Giles also incurred $10,657 in expenses in 2010.

Other rural directors bank about $22,371 per year, while municipal directors come in at $14,900, in addition to their separate salaries as municipal officials.

Expenses varied. North Cowichan’s George Seymour reported none, while North Cowichan Mayor Tom Walker only spent $185.

Area I, Youbou/Meade Creek director Klaus Kuhn spent second most, $9,937.

The Local Government Act requires the CVRD to hold a public meeting every year to present statements for the preceding year and the directors’ pay and spending.

Supporting documents, including 2010’s consolidated statements and supporting schedules, individual operating revenue and expenditures, and reserve funds can also be found on the CVRD’s website www.cvrd.bc.ca.
