Any guesses on how much of an increase in Admin costs for 2020 landowners are funding? As you can see below, the costs doubled from 2017 to 2019. $91,981 to $184,052. I had heard the previous (qualified professional) Admin’s pay was around $65,000/year and had 2 part time staff. An Admin who responded to correspondence in a timely manner with correct information.
The current admin was hired in the spring of 2017. Then after less than a year the amount was increased an additional $27,620. That’s a hell of an increase. Then the whopper last year to $184,052 for unqualified staff.
Look at the wages for previous years when we had qualified admin and a competent board (Molstad). Can’t have one with out the other. You remember that board? The one who brought us back from the brink of bankruptcy and got rid of the white elephant the previous board purchased without clear title? We are being royally screwed. There has been a spending spree since the spring of 2017, just like the board up until 2011 who spent every penny brought in.
You will note it’s the Ministry who advises Paul Healey resigned – not a peep from those great elected trustees and admin.
This letter is in response to Sept. 12 and 14 emails – before the crazy Sept. 19, 2019 meeting where Bitten wouldn’t allow Kaljur to speak (even though she was given the floor by Chair Healey) and told the guy with the video camera to shut it off because “we’re gonna get sued!” Wonder if Mueller has seen that one yet!
“It is clear that tensions on the Board continue and it is concerning that there are differing opinions about the extent to which the CAO is required to be involved in meetings and provide administrative support.”
“From the Ministry’s perspective, it is quite normal for UBID’s Board to have staff support to conduct administration and business of the meetings.”
So why hasn’t this board done anything about the staff not attending meetings and being allowed to make unsubstantiated claims about being ‘unsafe’ – it’s bullshit and they know it. Contact Worksafe BC or get legal counsel to investigate.
Still haven’t advised Paul Healey is no longer a trustee but looks like we’re heading to the polls again. Another reason to get rid of this lousy form of government – Union Bay is in upheaval every year due to yearly elections.
Sigh. COW meeting is Tues. Oct. 15. Board meeting is Thurs. Oct. 17 when we find out how much money they plan on spending.
Notice they are going to elect a Temporary Chair. What the hell are they doing? There are 4 trustees bumbling along and haven’t bothered to inform the landowners or elect a new chair. So in between meetings when they elect a ‘temporary chair’ only for that particular meeting there is no chair?
