I never get involved in local stuff, but this is interesting. Of course I am paying for this ... As of two years ago the village population is 8,243.
UPDATE: Here's another link if the one below doesn't work. https://www.crotonunited.org/news-views/2018/8/3/why-does-the-village-managers-base-salary-exceed-that-of-37-us-governors
The Village Manager’s contract is worth almost 2% of village tax levy in each of the three years it will be in effect. The Village Manager’s base salary exceeds that of 37 U.S. governors, and it exceeds that of the Cortlandt Town Supervisor, Linda Puglisi, by approximately $27,000. It contains terms that could cost village taxpayers hundreds of thousands of dollars in continuing benefits over the next several decades.
The Village Manager also gets a car and free gasoline. The base salary before perks is $170,000. Andrew Cuomo - Governor of NY - has a salary of $179,000.
