The Remuneration Authority has dismissed any possibility of pay cuts for West Coast council leaders. That rules out a pay cut for all West Coast mayors, according to Remuneration Authority chairwoman Dame Fran Wilde. Ross Giblin/Stuff Remuneration Authority chairwoman Dame Fran Wilde says elected members who earn less than $100,000 won't have cuts made to their salaries. West Coast council leaders, asked if they would reconsider the pay cut question, gave slightly testy responses this week. "The cuts don't occur for those under $100,000; any other reduction would require individual councils to resolve to reduce incomes to allow the Remuneration Authority to then determine the outcome.
