Gabriel Challenges City Pay Figures

City Administrator Wendy Gabriel (pictured) offered this response to an earlier post today re: Coeur d'Alene city salaries: "Your blog has a link to a document titled “Some of Coeur d’Alene’s Highest Paid Employees*”.  The City did not prepare this report although it appears to be a compilation of data that the City has provided in the past. Attached to this email and titled 2009-2010 Actual Pay is a document that was sent to the Idaho Freedom Foundation on May 12, 2011.  It includes pay for the period 10/1/2009 through 9/30/2010.  The data in this document appears to be shown in the document on your blog under column 4 titled “2010 Salary." Attached to this email and titled 2011-12 Budgeted Pay is a document that was provided to Sharon Culbreth on Sept. 13, 2011.  It is a list of projected pay for the upcoming fiscal year beginning Oct. 1, 2011 and ending Sept. 30, 2012.  It includes a 3% cost of living increase and any eligible service time/performance increases.  This data appears to be shown in the document on your blog under column 3 titled “2011 Salary”. I have several concerns regarding the document currently posted on your blog.  They are outlined below." More here.
