City of Nanaimo Wages and Benefits Reports - Not Clear

Reports are not very clear

It's that time of year again when different reports come from city hall explaining where your tax dollars went. A vast number of them went to pay for wages and benefits to people working for the Nanaimo taxpayer through City Hall.

The SOFI report claims the total to be $48,950,708 while the Annual Financial Statements peg the number including benefits at $58,876,116. That is a difference of nearly $10,000,000 in the reported total cost to the Nanaimo taxpayer of the payroll at city hall. Neither of these accounting's include the total paid for wages and benefits paid to the RCMP officers employed through the Nanaimo detachment. I would make an educated guess that this number would add at least another $15,000,000 to the total reported above.
