Forks Elected Auditors Meeting - No Raises!

At the elected auditors' meeting this night (1/8/08), after much discussion back and forth with members of the audience, the auditors voted not to increase the salaries of either of the Supervisors who work for the Township.

Auditor James Craig presented a motion to raise (Community Center Manager) Don Miller's salary from the current $43,000 to $45,000 (4.65%). Attendees were allowed input. Attendees were against another increase on the heals of last year's 56% increase.

Craig said, "Don Miller is a GOOD friend of mine... and the figures say, he deserves a raise." Auditors (Chair) Elizabeth Casapulla and (Secretary) Sandra Wideman disagreed. The vote was 1:2.

Wideman made a motion to hold Miller's salary at last year's level. The vote was 2:1. Craig disagreed. The audience applauded.

In the next order of business, Casapulla made a motion to take the Secretary/Treasurer (now Supervisor Bob Egolf) pay rate from $2271 to $3500. The motion died for lack of a second.

Craig motioned to freeze the Secretary/Treasurer's rate at last year's level. The motion passed 3:0.

And, that was that for this year.
