Some taxpayers in Saskatchewan's Prairie Valley School Division have been asking about whether or not the division has the authority to move ahead with certain capital projects.
Well, last week I wrote the Minister to find out more. Those who are following the issue, can read more about the issue in the letter posted below...
NDP leader Dwayne Lingenfelter recently committed to increase wind power in Saskatchewan by 400 megawatts over the next four years. Incredibly, Mr. Lingenfelter suggested building more wind power would cost about the same as natural gas.
In a previous blog entry, we noted how the Prairie Valley School Division accepted its Education Director's resignation (Ben Grebinski) in one motion and then immediately hired the individual back in the next.
The division orchestrated the move to allow the individual to technically retire and draw on his taxpayer-backed pension while drawing on a salary at the same time.
Lots of talk these days about board pay at the Saskatchewan Indian and Gaming Authority.
The story of course is that the relatively small organization has a total board compensation package of over $600,000 while many larger organizations have much lower board compensation levels.
Here's a quick follow-up blog to the news release the CTF recently put out on the Prairie Valley School Division.
Since, the release, it was confirmed on John Gormley's show that the Prairie Valley School division set-up the resignation-rehire series of motions to allow the Board's Education Director to draw on his pension (should he choose) and continue to work at the division for the same pay.
