Elected Councillors Gets A Lesser Salary In Comparison to an MP

Have you ever though what is the major benefit of being elected a councillor in Jamaica? What is the pay cheque like? All that information is available right here to the public.

Councillors get a monthly salary of $114,600 per month which is less than half of the salary a Member of Parliament (MP) receives.

An MP's basic salary is $3,457,267 per year or $288,105 month. In addition, MPs get a travelling allowance of $643,594 and subsistence of $43,200 yearly.

Councillors make $1,375,245 per year plus the other allowances. Those perks include a monthly divisional allowance of $20,000, a monthly subsistence allowance of $19,652 and $40 per kilo when travelling on official business

The financial rewards gets better if that councillor becomes a mayor.

According to an article found in THE STAR, the mayor makes $2,701,049 per annum ($225,087 per month), a housing allowance of $329,080 per year and a fully maintained car.

The deputy mayor earns $1,640,406 per year. He/she gets a monthly divisional allowance of $20,000, a monthly subsistence allowance of $19,652 and $40 per kilo when travelling on official business

Except for the Mayor of Portmore who is directly elected by the people, the mayor is decided by a vote among the councillors.
