Staff numbers down, wage bill unchanged
By Debbie Porteous
The Dunedin City Council now has 41 staff earning more than $100,000, but spending on key management personnel is less than it was two years ago, chief executive Paul Orders says.
The council’s annual report for the year to June 30 showed that while the total number of council employees had declined, the council’s total annual wage and salary bill remained about the same. The report was published yesterday and will be considered at a full council meeting on Monday.
Mr Orders said overall the report revealed a series of positive trends. While staff numbers were reducing, service levels were being maintained.
● The DCC annual report shows a small operating surplus of about $8 million.
● It confirms the council’s consolidated debt – spread across the Forsyth Barr Stadium, the council and its companies – rose to $623 million, up from $616 million at the end of the 2011-12 financial year.
● The report notes 2012-13 was the last year of capital expenditure on a number of large debt-funded capital projects and upgrades.
● Core council debt is expected to continue to rise from $225 million at June 30 to peak at $272 million in 2015-16, before beginning a gradual decline.
