Please explain bonuses

According to the report, the council is unable to reveal the amount paid in bonuses in the 2013-14 financial year as “the key performance indicators were still being assessed”.

Can the council then tell ratepayers how many staff members were paid bonuses in the 2012-13 financial year, the total amount paid, and the overall amount paid as bonuses since this scheme was first established.

Does the council really have to pay bonuses to senior staff just for doing their jobs?

The City of Stirling is basically a service organisation and owes ratepayers full transparency on this bonus scheme.

Ratepayers have no say in whether bonuses should be paid but see their savings depleted every year with rates bills increasing way above CPI.
