KDC staff country’s best paid says Union
Compared to every council in New Zealand, Kaipara District Council pays a higher proportion of its staff a salary over $100,000, according to Ratepayers’ Report, the Taxpayers’ Union’s 2017 local government league tables.
Nineteen percent of staff are paid salaries over $100,000, almost double the national average of ten percent.
