Lovech Mayor Kornelia Marinova will donate the 40% increase in her salary every month to the municipal fund for disasters and accidents. She announced this to Kmeta.bg after the municipal councilors accepted her proposal to increase the basic monthly salaries of the mayor of the municipality and the mayors of town halls.
Marinova also pointed out that the first few months of the increase will be used to overcome the consequences of the flood in Karlovsko and to help the affected population there, as a continuation of the donation campaign that the municipality of Lovech announced a few days ago.
The salary increase in the municipal administration – for employees and mayor’s deputies – is twice 20 percent this year – from April 1 and from July 1. Thus, the municipal mayor’s monthly salary from BGN 3,802 becomes BGN 4,562. Deputy mayors receive 80 percent of the mayor’s salary, and the chairman of the Municipal Council – 90 percent. According to Marinova’s data, the average gross salary of the municipal administration for July was BGN 1,181, which has been increasing every year since 2016.
