I thought I had. I missed some important information because I focused more on the introduction to the bill, the job description, functions and qualifications, which I carefully read. And I focused on comparing what other City employees earn that are comparable in salary, but I blew through the part about the budget adjustment. The adjustment of $21,563 is an appropriation reserved to pay for the last quarter of the 2007/2008 budget year and had I read it closer I might have realized that.
My apologies for the misunderstanding. I'd like to say I'll never make a mistake again but, knowing myself like I do I think I know better than to say such a foolish thing.
At any rate, it's nice to know the City is watching me as closely as I am watching them.
Thanks for teaching me a lesson, Ms. Whall. It's always good to be reminded that we must look at ALL the fine print and not just a part of it.
