Statement on Year-End Bonuses to City Council Assistants

ATLANTA – The following statement has been issued related to bonuses for council member aides in 2017.

“The issue related to bonuses given to selected high-ranking administration employees by former Mayor Kasim Reed in the amount of $811,000 is separate and apart from those given by some city council members to their aides. Bonuses given by council members to council aides are not prohibited in the city code, as long as the funding is in the council member’s budget. 

“Council aides do not accrue sick time, vacation time, citywide bonuses or pay increases, unless given to them by their council member.” – Dexter Chambers, Director, Atlanta City Council Office of Communications
