The Municipality of Meaford has submitted three employee names to the province as part of the Public Sector Salary Disclosure Act, which requires publicly funded organizations to disclose information about employees that make over $100,000 each year.
The act, passed in 1996, requires organizations that get public funding from the province to disclose the names, positions, salaries and total taxable benefits of employees that are paid $100,000 or more in a calendar year. The resulting list of employees is often called the Sunshine List. The municipality included three names on the 2018 salary disclosure list that was submitted to the province this month.
Robert Armstrong, acting CAO and director of Development & Environmental Services, was the top earner reported with a salary of $129,481.45 and taxable benefits of $1,493.40.
Up next is Darcy Chapman, treasurer and director of Financial Services & Infrastructure Management, receiving a salary of $119,774.20 and taxable benefits of $1,387.62.
The final submission from Meaford was Phillip Taylor, manager of Transportation & Fleet Services, with a salary of $103,090.02 and taxable benefits of $1,156.72.
