Township pay task force named

Five people will look into how Township council pay raises are granted.

Langley Township council released on Monday night the names of five people who will serve on a task force on remuneration.

The task force was proposed after councillors’ pay rose by 19 per cent in December, while the mayor’s pay rose 12 per cent.

This is for the current council term.

Pay raises are granted automatically every three years, based on the pay rates for councillors in several other municipalities.

Named to the task force were Deanna Horn, a former president of Fraser Valley Real Estate Board; former Vancouver Board of Trade executive Darcy Rezac, a Fort Langley resident; former City administrator Bob Wilson; Andrea Soberg and Barbara Sharp.
