Mayors get half-million crown bonuses

Municipal deputies in some Slovak towns approved bonuses of up to Sk500,000 for their mayors, the Pravda daily wrote on October 9. Some of these mayors have been holding their posts for less than 10 months.

The mayors of some Slovak towns have a higher salary than the prime minister, Pravda wrote.

The lawyer for Transparency International Slovakia, Vladimír Pirošík, said bonuses are OK if they are awarded to mayors who achieve visible results. He reminds that municipal coffers are not bottomless. The daily points out that salaries of some Mayors are higher than the salary of the Prime Minister.
