Don't know how much but he is worth every penny. If like most city employees he ain't paid enough. The highest paid office holder only makes $250.00 a month. That's gota change.

I hope you made a typo. There is no way a city employee makes that kind of money!

Not a typo!

It's public knowledge. It's reported every year. You can also find out pretty much anything else about how money is being spent by sending a written request to GL&P.

He has quite the lifestyle here while everyone else is going under!

Not updated since 2008 but you will get an idea of what someone is making. Most state employees have not had a raise since 2008.

It would not open for me. I have a few questions. 1.Is Mr. Chuck Bowlin the operations superintendent and is he in anyway a relative of the Manager? And how much does the Manager pay himself and his controller and the operations superintendent?

I too think this is a little high given current financial restraints. Many businesses are just trying to make it through these tough times.

GL&PS Hires Added Crew To Refurbish Power Lines
Published: 11:25 AM, 02/25/2010


Source: The Greeneville Sun

BY AMY ROSE

STAFF WRITER

The Greeneville Light & Power System's board of directors voted Monday to hire a new contract crew to refurbish power lines this year in several parts of the county.

A crew with Davis H. Elliot Company Inc.(Elliot), based in Roanoke, Va., will work on a temporary basis for three months, according to Bill Carroll, GL&PS general manager.

This new temporary work is a change in the utility's line contractor, Carroll noted.

For years, GL&PS's sole line contractor has been Pike Electric.

Pike will continue to work for GL&PS under its existing contracts, Carroll said.

This year's refurbishing of power lines will take place in areas along Pates Hill Road in western Greene County, the Horton Highway in northern Greene County, Sunnydale Road near the Camp Creek community and Mountain Valley Road in Baileyton, according to Chuck Bowlin, GL&PS operations manager.

Also, the Elliot crew will install new lines to a water pumping station on Alexander Ferry Road, off the 107 Cutoff, according to Bowlin.

The Elliot crew will be paid on an hourly basis, Carroll said.

Other line work to be done this year includes replacement of about five miles of high-voltage static line between the Industrial Park substation on Hal Henard Road and the Greeneville substation on McKee Street, Bowlin said.

GL&PS also does yearly routine maintenance for approximately 220 miles of lines, Bowlin said. This routine maintenance includes pole inspections, Carroll noted.

CARROLL SALARY INCREASE

Prior to adjournment of the 30-minute meeting, board member Sam Miller asked what is the amount of the salary increase given to GL&PS employees this year.

Carroll replied the employees received a 2.5 percent salary increase in this year's budget.

Miller then made a motion, which was approved, for Carroll to receive a 2.5 percent salary increase, retroactive to Jan. 1, which is when the board normally considers such an increase.

The increase will bring Carroll's salary to an estimated $153,750.
