Salaries approved for elected officials, trustees

The Bloomfield Township Board of Trustees unanimously approved compensation for the incoming supervisor, clerk, treasurer and trustees, effective at noon Friday, November 20, at a special meeting of the board on Monday, November 16.

None of the outgoing members of the administration will receive the increase in salary.

“Dani Walsh, Martin Brook and I had a discussion, and we all agreed not to take a vehicle or a vehicle allowance,” said treasurer Brian Kepes, who was re-elected for a four-year term. Walsh is the incoming supervisor and Brook the incoming clerk. They had been offered an $8,000 annual car allowance. The approved supervisor's salary, reflecting a 2.5 percent annual pay increase, will be $164,316.23. The approved clerk and treasurer's salaries also reflect a 2.5 annual pay increase, and will both be $143,290.01. The four elected trustees will receive $250 per meeting through the end of the trustee's term. Current trustees Neal Barnett and Michael Schostak are continuing on the board, to be joined by newly-elected trustees Stephanie Fakih and Valerie Sayles Murray. All were to be sworn in on Friday, November 20.
