SALARIES Administrator Wells discussed his salary recommendations for Mike Haley, Administrative Assistant and Rich Kufalk, Public Information Officer. The salary recommendation for Rich Kufalk is $8000.00 annually and $87,500.00 annually for Mike Haley.

Trustee Larson expressed her concerns over Michael Haley's salary. Although she feels Mike Haley is capable of doing the job, one of her concerns is that when Tim Wells leaves in August and Mike Haley replaces him as Administrator, there may be a request for an increase in salary at that time. Concerning Rich Kufalk's salary, Trustee Larson felt the salary was appropriate. Trustee Larson also expressed concerns regarding the salary recommendations for Glenda Sorensen, Community Development Assistant and Spiro Deligiannis, village hall staff. She also discussed the total amount of the salaries of the four newly created positions. Administrator Wells discussed the true overall costs of the salaries because of his retirement. There is a short term training process not only for his position, there also is a short term training process for other departments and Glenda Sorensen fits into this criteria. Administrator Wells stated that because the replacements are hired in at a lower salary rate, the overall savings is approximately $27,000.00. Trustee Larson is also concerned about staff moral because staff is being hired in at a higher rate than the person being replaced. Also, she hasn't seen any resume's or has heard of any interview process. Trustee Porch expressed similar concerns over the salary but respects Administrator Tim Wells recommendations.
