Fox 8: Mayor's staff made $230,000 in overtime and emergency pay during Isaac


1 comment

In an investigation so thorough, timely and pitch-perfect in execution that I have to call it stunning, Fox 8 digs through city payroll records and finds that Mayor Landrieu's top staff members — some of the highest-paid people in city government to begin with — took home about 5 annual cop salaries worth of emergency and overtime pay during the Hurricane Isaac emergency declaration. The city's six deputies mayors alone were paid to the tune of about one 4-H program.

The report comes in the midst of a tough budget season (and, I believe, Sweeps month), when most city departments are facing major cuts in the 2013 fiscal year. Read and watch it.
