Yeah, Maj... I agree in part

Yeah, Maj... I agree in part with you, but is a city manager for Wilmington REALLY worth $170K plus per year?? Here's the article source for this should you care to check: http://www.starnewsonline.com/article/20090704/ARTICLES/907029963

Let's do some math for the fun of it!

Let's assume two weeks paid vacation equating to 10 business days and 10 days for paid holidays... 20 business days equating to 4 weeks of paid non-attendance at work. Subtracting from a 52 week year, we get a 48 week working year from the city manager.

Giving the benefit of the doubt, let's give the city manager credit for working 80 hours a week. 80hours per week times 48 weeks worked is 3,840 hours.

Dividing $170000 by 3840 gives a rate of $44.28 per hour... not bad for government work.

What about all the other "administrators" and "supervisors" on the municipal payroll? What are they doing to earn a living??

Here's another link which describes the earnings range of a city manager at a range of $59.6 - 122 thousand dollars. http://www.payscale.com/research/US/Job=City_Manager/Salary
