Winnipeg CAO: Half a million for one month’s work
He only worked for the city in January of 2015 but was the highest compensated employee that year.
Former CAO Deepak Joshi collected just north of $567,000.
He was suspended by newly-appointed Mayor Brian Bowman.
Joshi resigned in February, shortly before the suspension was set to end.
Bowman at the time wouldn’t go into detail, simply stating he lost confidence in the CAO.
City Hall wouldn’t specify how Joshi collected the half a million dollars.
They say compensation can include salary, benefits, and severance, among other things.
COO Michael Jack was second on the city’s 2015 compensation list with pay over $222,000.
Winnipeg’s police chief Devon Clunis was third with more than $219,000.
Bowman reduced the mayor’s salary when he was elected.
He came in at 18 on the list with almost $179,000 worth of compensation.
