More than 350 employees of the City of Brandon made more than $50,000 last year.

That information was released this morning by the city. The annual disclosure of compensation to staff who earned more than that amount is required by provincial law.

The top earner was city manager Scott Hildebrand, whose compensation was $190,934.30 last year.

  • Scott Hildebrand — $190,934.30

He was one of more than 50 people who earned six figures in 2012, a list that included other top city administrators but also more than two dozen police officers who took home $100,000-plus. Nine people made more than $125,000.

City council is also included in the disclosure list, although only Coun. Murray Blight (Victoria) cracked $20,000 in compensation from the city. Mayor Shari Decter Hirst earned $74,983.27. A portion of mayoral and councillor compensation is tax-free.

The complete list is available for viewing at the City Clerk's office at City Hall, but the Brandon Sun has also scanned it and embedded it, above.

Each of these employees would be in the 40 - 45% tax bracket so do the math!

For another perspective on this issue and for the sake of transparency can the Brandon Sun please do an article and tell the citizens of this city how many positions have been created since 2010, especially higher paying management jobs? Taxpayers have a right to know!

Fine to tell what they make, but not fair not to tell their take home pay "AFTER TAXES". Huge difference!
