Volunteers selected to look at Nelson Council remuneration

Ahead of October's municipal election, Nelson City Council discussed options to set remuneration for the next council.

Volunteers are usually selected for an Indemnity Review Committee, which is what council decided will happen again this year.

However there was some discussion.

Councillor Janice Morrison says council's remuneration is lower compared to others, including the regional districts.

Council highlighted the importance of having staff provide the committee with comparative indemnity levels from other communities.
