Kulpa: No Raises for Amherst Elected Officials in 2019

Sept. 3, 2018

Amherst Supervisor Brian J. Kulpa

Elected officials in Amherst wouldn’t get pay raises next year under a proposal from Town Supervisor Brian J. Kulpa.

The proposed 2019 salaries are: $105,000 for supervisor; $35,000 for Town Board members; $82,000 for town clerk; $100,000 for highway superintendent; and $102,000 for town justices. In addition, the stipend paid to Deputy Supervisor Francina Spoth would remain at $4,000.

The Town Board would vote to set next year’s pay for elected officials Tuesday. The salaries also would go into the supervisor’s proposed 2019 budget.

“I am not finished with my budget proposal, but it strikes me early on that this needs to be a lean year and I do not see increases for elected officials as appropriate,” Kulpa said.The Town Board would vote to set next year’s pay for elected officials Tuesday.

    They did get substantial raises in 2017 and with the Town Supervisor stating that raises could not be approved due to a “lean” budget, it may be just me, but maybe he is setting the tone for any possible negotiations with Town employees.
