Ramapo Town Employees Receive Raises

According to Ramapo’s 2013-2014 salary schedules various employees received raises this year. Members of the Preserve Ramapo group have criticized that the highest raises went to those who helped current Supervisor Chris St. Lawrence stated that not everyone who received raises this year are politically active and the increases were in response to an attempt to save money by cutting jobs in certain departments, leading to a much heavier work load for the department heads, and there is no opportunity for them to receive overtime or vacation days. The highest noticeable raise was to Mona Montal, the Director of Purchasing, whose raise was $40,866. According to her, the town board set the salary increases. St. Lawrence stated that losing one of the employees in the department means longer hours with more work for mental. Michelle Antosca, Director of Parks and Recreation earned a ten percent raise; Anthony Mallia, Director of Building Planning and Zoning received an eight percent raise; Michael Klein, Town Attorney and Edward Dzurinko, Director of Public Works both received four percent raises; Christian Sampson, Town Clerk received a nineteen percent raise; and Justice Court Clerk Helen Travers got a fourteen percent raise. According to the New York State Comptroller’s recent audits Ramapo remains the second most fiscally stressed town in the state.
