Once again HCC proves itself incompetent in prudently managing our rates payments

Lianne from Glenview

Today it was reported that the majority of our HCC Councillors voted for a $15,480 per year (before tax) increase in favour of Richard Briggs. This brings his total annual remuneration package, including Kiwisaver, to $469,040. And just to make sure you feel empathy for the man, and to also quash… View moreToday it was reported that the majority of our HCC Councillors voted for a $15,480 per year (before tax) increase in favour of Richard Briggs. This brings his total annual remuneration package, including Kiwisaver, to $469,040. And just to make sure you feel empathy for the man, and to also quash any thought of objecting to this incompetence in prudently managing our rates payments, it was commented by Mike Mather that this "is his first pay rise since 2017. It equates to an increase of just less than 1.75 per cent for each of the past two years." Oh dear, poor soul. What a financial struggle Richard Briggs must have been enduring.

So now that we have a Chief Executive earning a little less than our Prime Minister - who reportedly earns $471K - is it not fair that we examine his performance?

The fundamental duty of a Chief Executive is to manage the overall operations and resources of a business. Knowing this, I am wondering how well Richard Briggs did at his job when considering the gobsmacking rates increases of 9.3% in 2018, and 3.8% annually from 2019 ... coupled with a change from land value to capital value rating, plus the introduction of the Uniform Annual General Charge? Remember that this is the same city council who not that long ago were pleading poverty and threatening ratepayers with all manner of nasty consequences if we dared to object. Reading the news today, do we not need to ask ourselves whether or not the ratepayers of Hamilton are getting best value for our money when paying the sort of salaries and increases outlined above? Personally I think not.
