More than 1/2 of those employees listed above make 40k and more. Add in the unbelievable bennies (including every day off possible, generous, generous vacations, exhorbitant sick time, along with health, vision, dental and GUARANTEED retirement) and they are well over 100,000k.

wow wow wow wow wow

and for us

ow ow ow ow ow

If the wages weren't bad enough, throw in the benefits that most of these people enjoy and this is a joke. John doesn't have the guts to say no to the unions that protect many of these people. Nothing personal against any of them but these wages are way out of line with the local private sector. My family health care alone exceeded $5000 last year. I doubt any of the names listed paid that much. It is time that the local citizens woke up and told their elected officials NO MORE!

these people arent worth half what they make. I've recently bought land in another county, hope to be able to build there in the upcoming year. Ilion sucks and so do the people that are employed by the village.Mr mayor, you raise our taxes and your days as mayor will be short lived. People here will vote your stupid ass out, no question about it.

Guess Cushman was'nt so bad after all. 22% his first year is a larger increase than the past 4 years combined! And don't try to say he has to make up for the past 4 years cause you know it's BS.

Where in any of this information does Stephens state that our taxes are going up 22%? All of these employees salaries are taken from a NYS website that gathers information from the NYS Retirement system. All employees are not even listed on here. As usual you people don't have proper facts and figures and go spouting off with improper information. So sad.

Oh and before all you crazies start getting all defensive and start sceaming and yelling that I am Stephens, I am not. I am not a supporter or a hater. Just don't like seeing innacurate information spewed on this forum constantly. That's what makes me sick. If you folks have an issue then approach him or any other VB member in person and talk to them face to face. That is what has happened to this world. Technology has taken the personal contact right out of doing business.

You mean there are MORE useless Ilion employees that were left of the list?

Look at the Pay Roll and bennies. That is where all your tax dollars are going. There is no money left for anything else to be done in the village. It's all in salaries.

Big Brothers there's many more than what is listed here so you might as well get ready for your tax bill to be higher. These people have it made and couldn't work anywhere else because they wouldn't survive. Go to some of the village meetings and see just what goes on there. Bring a bag because it's going to make you sick! I hear the employee's believe everyone is happy because they never hear any complaints at the board meetings. If you really have a complaint about your tax dollars, get off the computer and attend a meeting. Nothing can be done to change things if you don't get off your chair and make your dissatifaction known.

New York State under the leadership of newly elected Govenor Andrew Cuomo,relize the condition public unions and their health and pension benefits have put the State, Counties, and local municipalities.Efforts by him and other national figures are underway,to propose a property tax cap of no more than 2% annually, as well as considering drafting of Legislation to limit union representation for most public employees.
These are lofty and prudent goals; a necessary first step in restoring sanity back to government spending and public employment.
Local leaders, unions, and public employees, should take heed, and prepare politicaly and adminstratively for this growing trend, or risk the wrath of the tax payer and being out of a job!
Support the Govenor and these initatives.

speaking of unions - is there a reason why the contracts aren't posted on the website for the taxpayers to see? Or why don't the taxpayers get a chance to vote for the benefits in the contracts?

Are there any regulations against this? This isn't only for Ilion, but these benefits we can't afford in the village, state or federal govt. Just curious.....
Nice Going

Great to see that the Stephens clan voted to spend almost $200 thousand on a new plow truck and now want to spend another half-million bucks on a new fire truck.

Better start looking to sell your homes because you won't be able to afford your property taxes - unless you work for the village.

Nice going Ilion Board.

ALL I HAVE TO SAY IS I THINK ALL THE VILLAGE EMPLOYEES SHOULD BE LIVING AND PAYING TAXES IN ILION IF THEY ARE EMPLOYEED THERE , WHICH I KNOW THEY ALL DON'T LIVE IN ILION, THAT IS THE SHAME, IF THEY HAD TO PAY THAT TAX MAYBE THE WOULD HAVE A DIFFERENT VIEW ON THERE PAY AND BENEFITS.
