While Willoughby Hills residents received a taxpayer funded mailer promoting yet another property tax hike, City Council is set to consider administrative employees’ demands for cash bonuses, big guaranteed raises, and more. The top-earning secretarial employee making these demands, Mayor Andy Gardner’s Administrative Assistant, Gloria Majeski, already costs the taxpayers well over $100,000 a year and has been the subject of much controversy over the years. Another employee demanding a big raise is the Finance Assistant, Sharen Michney, who admittedly threatened and physically assaulted another City employee in 2017.
These public employee demands come at a time when many residents’ incomes have been impacted by the coronavirus pandemic and just as they are beginning to pay for one of the largest property tax hikes in City history, the school levy that narrowly passed in the district, but was not favored by a majority of voters in Willoughby Hills.
