RIDGEFIELD, Conn. – The new Ridgefield town budget passed at a March 9 Board of Selectmen meeting includes a raise for First Selectman Rudy Marconi, according to the Ridgefield Press.
Part of the $34.7 million allocated, an increase of just over two percent in town spending, includes money for a eight-man minimum fire shift as well, the Press said.
The reasoning behind Marconi's raise is that the new salary brings him in line with other towns since he fills both the first selectman and town manager role for Ridgefield, reported the Ridgefield Press.
Marconi will get an $8,000 raise to about $136,500 in annual salary, the Press noted.
