Reduced Salaries for Gray’s City Officials
In the wake of scrutiny over salaries for city officials, Mayor Vincent Gray has reduced salaries for eight city managers, by one to four percent, according to WTOP.com.
"I hired managers with outstanding qualifications and their initial salaries reflected their extensive experience and background," Gray said in a press release. "I have now adjusted those salaries commensurate with the compensation schedules."
At the same time, Gray released an online survey for public input on the 2012 budget, which includes five questions of various length and substance.
According to a press release from Gray's office, he will "attend several community meetings across the city to discuss the budget" after it is rolled out in April. Additionally, Gray has encouraged residents to get involved in the DC Council budget hearings, which will run from April 7 to May 6.
