MERIDIAN — The City Council has voted to cut the salaries of some department heads.
Mayor Percy Bland, who was elected in June, replaced some department heads and kept others. In doing so, he set higher pay for directors of community development, homeland security and the chief of police.
The chief administrative officer’s salary was cut, as was the salary of the public works director.
The fire chief and parks and recreation director each received slight raises from the City Council but the chief financial officer’s salary remained unchanged.
The pay cuts are expected to save almost $39,000 annually.
City CAO Curt Goldacker tells The Meridian Star that the pay cut will not affected his future with the city.
