Croydon Council spent £1,833,846 on the salaries and pension contributions of just 15 executive staff members in 2012-2013, according to figures published by the TaxPayers’ Alliance.
Averaged out – and one or two individuals were trousering considerably more than the average – that means that our council’s most senior staff are being paid around £2,350 per week.
The council’s executive wage bill for 2012-2013 – the last year for which figures are available – was reduced by more than £1 million over the previous financial year.
That is largely because six people holding executive positions paying mega-salaries appear to have been cut from the council’s wage bill, including a single individual who in that one year was paid a total of £212,500.
