In accordance with the Public Sector Salary Disclosure Act (PSSDA), the City of Windsor has made public the salaries and benefits paid to employees who earned $100,000 or more as reported on the Canada Revenue Agency T4 slip.
Known often by its unofficial name, the “Sunshine List”, public salary disclosures are required to be reported by law by the end of March every year.
The city notes that in many cases the amounts include payments for such one-time items as acting pay, overtime, retroactive payments and/or settlements which do not form part of the normal base salary of employees.
The City also notes that the offical “sunshine list” does not require the inclusion of the mayor’s salary, because, based on the noted legislation and Ministry guidelines, it falls below the threshold of $100,000. However, in the interest of full disclosure, Mayor Eddie Francis has requested that the full amount of his remuneration be reported for the purposes of this public disclosure.
The top three earners for the City of Windsor are Helga Reidel, Chief Administrative Officer at $207,892.43, followed by Ronna Warsh, Commissioner of Development and Health at $181,827.73 and Valerie Critchley, City Clerk/Licence Commissioner at $168,991.74.
