This letter is in response to an article that appeared in the June 24, 2005, edition of the Payson Roundup. The article stated my current salary as $91,680 per year. The actual figure is $100,440 per year. The article further stated that if the market increases are approve, my salary would rise to $118,932 on July 1. My salary is set by Council and will not change with adoption of a market study. It will not rise to $118,932 on July 1 as stated in the article. It will only change when, and if, the Council takes action as required in my contract.
Fred Carpenter, Town Manager of Payson
