‘Very concerned’ – Archibong questions pay raises
WABE is reporting that Atlanta City Councilwoman Natalyn Archibong is “very concerned” about reports that the chief of Atlanta’s Watershed department was able to give pay raises without approval by the City Council.
Archibong, who represents Kirkwood, is chairwoman of the committee that oversees the department.
WABE reported that, “Earlier this year, Watershed chief Jo Ann Macrina awarded pay raises to five members of her leadership team, ranging from $15,000 to $25,000. The raises were backdated to June so retroactive pay was included.”
According to the station, Archibong suggested that Mayor Kasim Reed should consider leadership changes in the department. Reed has said the raises would be rescinded, according to WABE.
According to the station, Archibong said, “My question is, has the mayor lost confidence yet in his leadership team?”
