Christchurch City Council chief executive remuneration reviewed
Christchurch City Council has increased the remuneration package of its chief executive, Dr Lesley McTurk, by 9.8 per cent to $335,355, says Mayor Garry Moore.
The Council considered the matter at its 16 December meeting and took advice which included a performance review process, including input from key external stakeholders and information about New Zealand chief executive officer remuneration packages in local government and other public sector organisations.
�gThe increase is the first since Dr McTurk joined the City Council in May 2003,�h Mr Moore says. �gIn effect, it is made up of 5% to bring the package back into line with the market and an annual adjustment of 4.8% which reflects her extremely strong performance.
�gDr McTurk has successfully addressed a number of key issues and priorities identified by the Council when she was appointed.�h
The new remuneration package applies from the beginning of the Council�fs current financial year, 1 July 2004, and as in the 2003/04 year, includes provision for 10% performance pay.
�gThe Council has agreed with Dr McTurk a number of key strategic issues for the current year which will form the basis for performance payment at year-end,�h Mr Moore says.
�œ The Christchurch City Council�fs 2004 Annual Report (note 18) includes details of the chief executive�fs remuneration package for 2003/04 and a year-earlier comparison. The note is at p50 in the printed version and on p52 of the on-line version, on the web as a PDF at
