Salaries and Benefits?

by David Stanowski
02 December 2011


Introduction:

How much does it cost the taxpayers to pay the salaries and benefits at the GHA?

The GOGP examined the records from 30 September 2010 to 30 September 2011.

We have made no effort to look at the costs of staffing other housing authorities as a comparison to the GHA, or other similar government agencies like the Park Board and the Wharves Board. We merely present the data supplied to us by GHA, and let the people draw their own conclusions.

Questions:


Is spending $5.2 million a year helping to pull people in this city out of poverty, or is it just a way to create employment for about 100 people?

Is GHA worth the money spent to staff it?


Is GHA an asset or a liability to the City?

What benefits does GHA provide to the City as a whole?

While it is good to see that the staff size has been decreasing, why do they still have 99 employees?

Why did the avweage wage per employee increase as the economy was declining during the period in question?

What are your questions?
