Town of Boston Supervisor proposes 100% raise

Posted at 6:02 PM, Oct 17, 2018

Town of Boston Supervisor Jason Keding says the town needs more than a part-time supervisor, and he's proposing a salary increase to bring him to full-time status.

"During the course of the business day, the supervisor should be accessible to the public," Keding said. "Whether it's meetings or conducting town business."

In the 2019 tentative budget, Keding is proposing a salary jump from $31,854 to $63,708.

Keding says the salary is comparable to other town supervisors in Erie County.

Some taxpayers in Boston disagree with the raise, saying they don't believe the town needs a full-time supervisor.

Keding says with the raise would come other full-time responsibilities, and already he says he works more than 40 hours a week on a part-time salary.
