No pay raise for ignite cda exec Berns

The executive director of Coeur d'Alene's urban renewal agency, ignite cda, will not receive a raise in the upcoming fiscal year. Instead, following an executive session of ignite's board of commissioners on Tuesday, the board voted unanimously in favor of paying for the increase to Tony Berns' medical insurance plan. The move echoes that of the previous fiscal year. Mayor Steve Widmyer, who also serves as a commissioner, told The Press the increase is approximately $2,400. "All of the other terms of his contract are the same," Widmyer added/Keith Cousins, Coeur d'Alene Press. More here.

DFO: Don't worry about Tony. He should be able to make ends meet on an annual salary of $135,346. Thoughts?
