People should ask what kind of job Ted Howze, Kurt Spycher and Kurt Vander Weide are doing on the Turlock City Council. I would imagine the city manager, Tim Kerr, would work up a compensation package for city employees and a separate one for fire and safety. These would be presented in closed session for review and discussion. It is during these meetings that questions and concerns should be addressed. Either you are not paying attention or are incapable of understanding what is being presented to you. You are trying to micromanage the city manager, who I feel is doing a great job.
