City Manager Compensation in 3 OC Cities Comes Under Scrutiny by Grand Jury
When the city of Laguna Hills pays you $233,000 in base salary to fill the role of City Manager, of course it should also dish out another $60,000 to ensure that you're riding around in style--everyone knows $233k doesn't go as far as it used to. That's Bruce Channing's situation right now, and that's not taking into account the other benefits in his total compensation package, which comes up to $324,535.
Dave Kiff, the city manager for Newport Beach, makes a base salary of $233,531.20, with an additional $64,701.77 in benefits, bringing his compensation package to $298,232.97, according to the 2011-12 proposed city budget. Interestingly, both the Assistant to the City Manager and the Executive Assistant to the City Manager make over $110,000 in total compensation.
