City Hall guarantees salaries for rest of 2009
While ‘on time’ salary payments has been an age old plague for the Georgetown City Council staffers, the Municipality’s Deputy Mayor Robert Williams is assuring that those days are guaranteed over.
Deputy Mayor Williams, who is also the head of the City’s Finance Committee, said that on time salary payments for the remainder of the last quarter is guaranteed. “I can tell you that forthright in September we have benefited from $157m in outstanding and current taxes collected.”
The Deputy Mayor said, too, that impressively so, rates and taxes payers are steeping up to the plate and paying for the entire last quarter of 2009.
When asked about the usual Christmas salary woes faced by staffers of the municipality he assured that the cash is so bountiful in the city’s coffers that “they don’t have to worry about Christmas salaries; its safe and secure…Even the press stands to benefit from several special functions.”
This, according to Deputy Mayor Williams, stems from persons taking advantage of the recent amnesty by City Hall.
