Panel Clears Way for MWD Pay Increase
A divided Southern California Metropolitan Water District board cleared the way Tuesday for big pay raises for the general manager and other top officials. But, faced with angry protests from a substantial board minority, the district’s directors delayed a final decision on the increases until next month.
The board voted 24 to 19 for a pay scale formula that would allow General Manager Carl Boronkay a raise from his present $113,448 a year to a maximum of $144,852. But a board committee will meet in two weeks to discuss just how much of a raise should be given to Boronkay and five other district executives.
