The PP will urge the Ministry of Public Administration and FEMP to establish by law the salaries for elected office in local government (24/06/2012)

Totana City Council will urge the Ministry of Finance and Public Administration and the Spanish Federation of Municipalities and Provinces (FEMP) to fix by law the remuneration of elected representatives in local authorities, and establish a framework of salaries for senior managers, based on technical criteria and linear.

The municipal government spokesman, David Amoros, will raise a motion this week at the next regular full, which is also going to request that consideration be given to reduce public office in local government corporations following new parameters sociological and cheap date.

Amoros said that the measure of betting on this homogenization of criteria is more necessary at a time of economic difficulties and in the interests of greater transparency in local government, and states that the initiative is not only a rational response to the crisis, but also provides greater transparency and rationality of the remuneration which they may receive public office in Spain.

As recorded by the proposal, some time has been at the forefront of political debate the possibility of standardizing the setting of salaries of local elected officials and the establishment of a framework of salaries of senior officials to avoid these disputes.

The mayor adds that lines of responsibility and proportionality should not be allowed to have public officials, both local and regional administrations, whose remuneration exceeded by far those of the Prime Minister.

According to the Spanish Federation of Municipalities and Provinces (FEMP), towns with fewer than 4,883 inhabitants and its rulers, with some exceptions, do their work "a labor of love" and not receive a monthly wage for taking decisions affecting the 60% of the people of Spain and 3.5% of the population.

The municipalities are studying within the FEMP, the criteria for fixing the salaries of mayors and councilors, which can contribute in this way, maximum transparency in local governance and extract the subject of political debate and elections.

Apparently, the FEMP has no policy framework for the remuneration of councilors and mayors, but has a good governance code that recommends local authorities to adhere to some guidelines.

It is advised that payroll meet objective criteria such as population, the budget or the municipal financial situation, and that wages are set taking into account the salaries of positions with similar responsibilities in other administrations.
