How high is Sandy's cost of living if the city administrator can't live on $151,000?

Thanks to the Trib's persistence in prying bonus figures out of Sandy City administrators' cold undead fingers, we now know that Mayor Tom Dolan and his 12 buddies sit around giving each other bonuses on a regular basis. (Boy, won't the Utah Taxpayers Association be all over that!)

For other city officials who are behind the curve, The Trib offers an instructional diagram, roughly translated as: "You approve my bonus, I'll approve your bonus."


The most impressive yield is by Sandy City Administrator Byron Jorgenson. For administering a city of 100,000, Mr. Jorgenson makes a salary of $151,000, plus (so far this year) $12,500 in bonus money. Sandy residents can't really complain about that. I mean, his salary is only 150 percent of the governor's salary, and he's worth way more than that, especially since, according to Sandy City,

"A large part of Mr. Jorgenson’s leadership strength comes from his high standards of personal ethics and integrity, which he exemplifies himself and demands in those around him."

And that's why Mr. Jorgenson deserves such a huge bonus -- because he spends so much time demanding integrity from others.

This is among the many reasons why I'll move long before White City gets annexed by Sandy. Everybody is greasing the wheels.
