Tell ratepayers

EXCUSE the cynicism but will the City of Stirling executives who negotiated the purchase of the Mercedes-Benz vehicles for the mayor and chief executive now qualify for bonuses on top of their considerable salaries?

The council needs to display some much-needed transparency by revealing the total it has paid to executives since the KPI scheme started about seven years ago.

It is probably well in excess of half a million dollars and the City has a moral obligation to inform its ratepayers exactly how much of their money has been paid out in bonuses for executives who met only 80 per cent of their KPIs.

Or is the City too embarrassed to tell ratepayers what they have the right to know?
