Brigantine Council approved resolution authorizing four-year contract for City Manager Stinson….at $127,500. Council lead by Mayor Guenther pushed for questionable…and possibly non-compliant four-year contract.
Stinson contract also calls for a very un-popular automatic 2 percent salary increase each year. This drew howls from those in attendance during public comment. Most Brigantine residents believe there should NOT be automatic raises. Rather, raises should only be based on performance.
City Council also approved a contract for new Police Chief Jim Bennett. The popular chief will receive an annual salary of $140,831, plus healthcare and pension.
