On Tuesday night October 3rd, the Gloucester County Board of Supervisors will vote on a resolution to increase County Administrator, Brent Fedors’ and County Attorney, Ted Wilmot’s pay and benefits, effective July 1, 2017. That’s right last July. Unfortunately, the vote will be held with no public discussion because the matters are contained in the meeting’s consent agenda. For those who do not know; a consent agenda is basically a list of public matters and supporting documents that are voted on collectively, with no public discussion. We can’t help but wonder if the County Administrator didn’t hide money in this year’s budget to cover his and the County Attorney’s pay increase.
There are other significant increases in paid time off, bonus paid days off, increases in the amount of accrued paid time off, increases in the amount of accrued paid time off that can be cashed in at the time of separation from employment with the County and increases in the amount of healthcare expense payouts by the county. Wonder how our blue-collar county employees will feel when they become aware of this nonsense?
We have provided the resolution documents in the Slideshare presentations below. We encourage everyone to review the increases and let the Board of Supervisors know this is completely unacceptable on many levels. Tell them the County Administrator and the County Attorney need to use their paid vacation time or lose it.
