Last night, the Cheshire Town Council approved a contract extension and raise for Town Manager Michael Milone.
Milone received a 2.25 percent raise following the unanimous Council vote. He received a pay increase of approximately $3,000 – from $135,497 annually to $138,546 a year. Milone, who has been Town Manager since 2000, had his contract extended for a year, which now expires on June 30, 2015. The Town Council praised Milone for his work over the last year and said he was deserving of the raise.
“He deserves this. He is worth every penny of this raise,” noted Town Councilor and Budget Committee Chairman David Schrumm.
Additionally, when Milone retires, his unused sick time, which is capped at 50 unused days, will be paid out at his current rate of pay. Previously, the unused sick time was locked into his salary of approximately $85,000 when he served as Finance Director. The change could represent an additional $9,300 payout for unused sick time.
