With a new round of civic elections on the horizon are local councillors getting enough compensation?
It’s a question being asked by some around the table in Nelson.
Robin Cherbo isn’t happy to hear a proposal by the city to cut a $1,000 annual clothing and technology allowance by over 60%.
He says those newly elected people may need suits, computer equipment and cell phones related to being a councillor.
Nelson councillors get paid $15,000 a year and Cherbo questions if that’s enough given all the hours of work involved.
