Huntsville’s mayor and councillors actually saved money in 2020, at least when it came to council renumeration.

Final budget numbers show that the total renumeration paid to council was $248,104, less than the $270,372 that was originally budgeted.

The two main areas where savings occurred included only $1,725 of a budgeted $10,828 being spent for additional meetings or attendance at conferences or meetings; and only $8,495 spent from a budget of $20,000 in discretionary spending. Of the discretionary spending, $5,000 were donations to support community organizations.

Mayor Karin Terziano received a total renumeration of $53,712 in 2020 ($49,752 plus a $525 per diem, and $3,436 in benefits such as CPP payments).

Deputy Mayor Nancy Alcock was at $26,260 ($24,567 plus a $100 per diem and $1,592 in benefits); meanwhile Councillors Dan Armour, Jason Fitzgerald, Dione Schumacher, Jonathan Wiebe, and Tim Withey each received $24,331 ($22,718 plus a $150 per diem and $1,463 in benefits).
