- The 2018 base pay remuneration for Elected Officials at Tecumseh is the same or higher relative to the comparator group identified.
- Base pay for the Deputy Mayor and Councillor positions is higher than the 65th percentile of the comparator group (22% and 13% respectively).
- The 65th percentile target (P65) is a reasonable pay target for base pay having regard to local area practice and the comparator group.
- Other elements of compensation are generally competitive, including health and life benefit coverage, technology, travel and professional development.
- That base pay for the Elected Official positions be adjusted to offset the removal of the 1/3 tax free treatment, effective January 1, 2019, and
that the adjustment be removed in the event that the CRA provision is repealed.
- That Council continue the practice of adjusting base pay for the Elected Official positions annually by using the % adjustment provided for the
Management/Non-union Salary Grid; however, Council may wish to consider a varied economic adjustment for the Mayor, Deputy Mayor and/or Councillor position in 2019 and future years to normalize the base pay for the three positions and become more aligned with comparator practice and the 65th percentile (i.e.,100% of the economic adjustment for the Mayor, 50% for Councillor and 25% for Deputy Mayor)
- That an external review be conducted once every four years using a Community Advisory Committee, a Consultant and comparator data; the next
review being during the next term of Council (2022-2026)
- That Council consider revising the comparator group when the comparators for the Management/Non-union compensation change.
- That Council consider providing more itemization of the remuneration and benefits in the Annual Statement of Council Remuneration.
