To the editor:
This year, Sunset Beach council members Lou DeVita, Karen Joseph and Wilson Sherrill approved 5 percent salary increases, raising already inflated salary levels to 15 percent in four years.
This year’s salary increases alone will cost taxpayers $146,000 each year and $730,000 (constant dollars) in five years, including employee benefits.
The generous taxpayers for years have also paid 100 percent of medical insurance increase premiums for our employees. Who pays your medical insurance increases?
