Let’s just say, it’s gross. While the minions got crumbs thrown at them, the managers cashed in. The mayor’s office which lists 4 full-time employees make a combined SALARY (not benefits) of almost $500K. Do the math. Interestingly enough, his receptionist is NOT listed. In fact, I can’t find her on the report. Rumors are she left before the first of the year.

Maybe another Poops casualty? Maybe she saw thru the BS and said, F’ck it!

The Medical Director for the city (even though many cities don’t have medical directors) makes close to $300K a year (a $19K raise from 2023). I will say that Falls Community Health is an invaluable asset, and her salary is probably covered by Federal Assistance. I have changed my views on this. First off, I have heard multiple compliments about the director’s compassion and patient care. I have also heard that many Medicaid recipients are shamed into going to FCH because the normal medical facilities put up roadblocks. As a person who has benefitted from the ACA as self-employed person, I think it is ludicrous that health care facilities discriminate against these people, and I commend her for helping these folks, while making good dough 🙁

While we can all bitch about government assisted healthcare in this country, for many, it is the only option.

Her salary is (kinda) justified.

9 Thoughts on “City Salaries for 2024

  1. she did leave maybe you should see how many have left under tenhaken must be a bad culture there all i hear are bad things about city worker environement bad directors still in place many good people left all i know and hear and i mean a ton have leaft in the last few years wow its staggering

  2. 7k rasie for digital manager for best website evr maybe what is diff between communications lead and supervisor and manager and what do they do what abour transparency and mayors office and helping us constituents would be good to know im sure

  3. You, know, it is funny, if the mayor would just be open and transparent, he would have nothing to worry about this crap. Mark Twain said it best, ‘If you never lie, you never have to remember anything.” Sound advice.

    Because of inflation and the declining value of the dollar, it’s paid in pesos and not as bad as it looks. State and local workers must be paid more for hazardous duty. It’s dangerous work rolling up razor wire for shipment to Governor Davy Crockett in Texas. REMEMBER THE ALAMO.

    Sometimes I wonder if they’re embarrassed for taking bribes to not snitch about city budget fraud. Isn’t this why so many leave?

    I suspect Noem is following Trump orders to incite a riot. South Dakota is several states away from the Mexican border problem. How could she equate Native (original) Americans and illegal drugs with starving illegal immigrants. She’s desperate to be named as Vice President on the Trump ticket. Another Giuliani? Once praised but soon disgraced. Pence and most of his cabinet wouldn’t join Trump Conspiracy. She’ll be shamed and gone. Jackley should make a good Governor. The state airplane will be home more often.

    Jackley would never make a good governor. If you study his record in depth you would find he likely be found guilty or crimes due to his behind the scenes activities. I will never trust him or his flawed judgment.

    Can you run the state as governor based on a twig theory and with a lost safe?
