Ninety-three staffers and one elected official eclipsed the $100,000 mark in the City of Coquitlam last year, according to numbers released Monday.
And much like the 2010 totals, two of the city's top staffers were members of the exclusive $200,000-plus club, with city manager Peter Steblin netting $237,585 and deputy city manager John DuMont collecting $212,440.
By way of comparison, Steblin made $228,363 in 2010, while DuMont was paid $204,126.
In total, 86 staffers and one elected official - Mayor Richard Stewart - made north of $100,000 in 2010.
Stewart's 2011 pay checked in at $123,696, compared to his 2010 salary of $117,939.
Stewart also claimed $13,364 in expenses, though his expense total was far less than former Coun. (and mayoral contender) Barrie Lynch, who claimed $20,776 last year.
Couns. Brent Asmundson, Neal Nicholson, Mae Reid, Linda Reimer, Selina Robinson and Lou Sekora each made $53,836, while former Couns. Doug Macdonell and Lynch grossed $49,694.
The newcomers to council, Couns. Craig Hodge and Terry O'Neill, made $4,141 each.
All told, council's remuneration was pegged at $554,382, while close to $97,000 in expenses were claimed.
Outside of Steblin and DuMont, the city's top-10 earners' list for 2011 is rounded out by Bill Susak, general manager of engineering and public works ($186,869); Lori MacKay, general manager of parks, recreation and culture ($186,168); Maurice Gravelle, general manager of strategic initiatives ($186,039); Jim McIntyre, general manager of planning and development ($184,840); Sheena MacLeod, manager of financial services ($172,406); Tony Delmonico, chief of Coquitlam Fire and Rescue Services ($169,585); Tom Boechler, deputy chief of operations with the Coquitlam Fire and Rescue Services ($163,631) and Ron Price, manager of human resources ($156,447).
