IN a vote last week in Benidorm’s Town Hall, its mayor Agustin Navarro got to keep his current wage of €92,000 a year, being the same his salary for last year, when he took a 10 per cent pay cut.
The mayor of a town of 72,000 inhabitants is being paid more than the Prime Minister of Spain, who, according to the state budgets for this year is paid €78,185, after taking a 15 per cent pay cut this year.
Even the regional president, Francisco Camps, is paid less than the Benidorm Mayor, with his basic salary coming in at €67,615. Navarro has ignored the recommendation from the Spanish Federation of Municipalities and Provinces, who recommend a Mayor with 25 councillors be paid €61,000.
