Pay discrepancy? UPDATED

Lebo Citizens reader David Huston emailed the commissioners this afternoon and questioned the Earnings By Department report published in my January 17, 2017 post Out of whack.

President Dave Brumfield responded at 8:57 PM??? to David with this:

All commissioners receive $3,500.

Why does Steve McLean make $3,500, while all the other commissioners get $3,400?


Is the Earnings By Department report incorrect? Should we be checking all the salaries?

Update January 24, 2017 11:35 AM Nick M. contacted Andrew McCreery for a clarification.

Due to a clerical error in 2015, the 4 commissioners were over paid $100 in 2015.  We reduced this amount in 2016 to rectify.

Mr. McCreery, 
Regarding the 2016 compensation for the commissioners, Mr. McLean received $100 more than the others. 
Why is this? 

Thank you,

It does seem like a serious external audit of MTL is in order. Maybe they will find nothing shady. Or maybe they will find more dirt than in Hillary's AOL account and Trump's tax returns combined.

I'm more taken back at over $1,000,000 in salaries being paid to the library staff.

I can't figure out the justification for that.
