Payout levels for municipal staff in Whistler fell by $1,273,822.32 or 5.6 per cent in 2011 compared with 2010, according to the statements of financial information released by the Resort Municipality of Whistler (RMOW) on June 21.

The total amount of remuneration -- which includes Employment Insurance, Canada Pensions Plan, health benefits and taxes, and taxable benefits - was $21,418,584.71 in 2011, and $22,692,407.03 in 2010, allowing for the anomaly of extra costs, including overtime, in an Olympic year.

The figure excludes expenses - for costs such as mileage, profession accreditation fees, and event registration fees - which came to $335,260.32.

By way of comparing to a non-Olympic year, the 2011 amount is 5.3 per cent higher than remuneration levels for municipal staff in 2009, which was $20,278,306.25.

Councillors and mayoral remuneration for 2011, an election year which saw a clean slate with new mayor Nancy Wilhelm-Morden and a new team of councillors, came to $190,257.34, excluding expenses of $18,317.03. In 2010, mayor and councillors remuneration came to $184,964.00, excluding expenses of 17,146.24.
