Who made what: Metropolis of Regina releases record of worker salaries

Some city employees took home some big bucks in Regina.

The city has released its public accounts report from last year. It includes a list of salaries and other expenses for employees who work directly with the city, as well as members of the fire department, police service, Regina Exhibition Association Limited (REAL) and a few other areas.

The list includes the salary of every employee who receives more than $50,000.

The annual public accounts report was presented to Regina’s executive committee on Wednesday.

The employees’ pay is broken up into two categories: Their base salary, and an “other” category.

According to the report, “other remuneration may include vacation credits, sick credits, allowances, membership fees of $1,000 or greater, and/or amounts paid to an employee upon termination.”

Former city manager Chris Holden again held the top spot on the list.

Between his base salary and his “other” pay, Holden earned $297,951 last year. Holden was dismissed by the city in February.

Tim Reid, the president and CEO of REAL, took home more than $295,000 in 2021.

Next on the list were the two highest-ranking police officers in the city. Chief Evan Bray made more than $287,000, with Deputy Chief Dean Rae fourth at $253,719.

Diana Hawryluk, the executive director of city planning and community development for the city, rounded out the top five with earnings of $246,005.
