>>> earns $50,000 annually for the job. In 2005, while serving as interim town manager, took on the role of public safety director.
The council formally named him to the post of public safety director in May 2006, adding another $52,500 to his yearly income.
Atta boy, Mayor Kaupin and his band of merry Republicans. Its about time someone pulled the plug on this questionable "arrangement" since the Town Attorney, slash Town Manager fill-in was appointed by Enfield Dems as a part-time fill-in for Shanley. Remember too, Shanley was also being paid after he was asked to resign. So a lot of cash was leaving the Town.
Once Enfield hired a new Town Manager, something should have been done about this situation (because Shanley also served as the Public Safety Director in his Town Manager position). Why couldn't Coppler take on the responsibilities? Was his starting Town Manager salary that much "less" since he didn't have to cover all Shanley did?
The average Enfield resident doesn't earn $52K a year, let along over a $100K. That kind of salary is totally unneccessary in a town the size of Enfield.
Glad to see the new Town Council is already starting to "clean house". The Dems left quite a messy house so it will take a while. But keep up the good work. The Enfield residents truly appreciate a close eye kept on expenses and the bottom line.
