Editor’s note: Kudos to Jason Bobst for trying to lead by example and forgoing a raise in 2012.
POTTSTOWN, Pa. — In a year that police officers saw a 3 percent salary increase and borough workers 2.1 percent, some borough managers and supervisors are enjoying pay increases as high as 14 percent, including a 10 percent raise for a supervisor recently convicted of drunk driving.
A review of management staff wages for 2012 shows a wide disparity in the raises provided to the non-union staff.
The information was provided to The Mercury through a Right-to-Know request made by former code enforcement director Jeff Smith.
According to the information provided by the borough, the highest increase — 14.2 percent — went to grants coordinator Erica Weekley.
