Wants explanation of lump-sum travel stipend


Letter to the editor


To the editor:

Regarding the recent story headlined "Mehlville administrative salary hikes range from 0.86% to 4.98% for '04-'05,'' I really would like someone to explain the reasoning behind the lump sum in-district travel allowance given to top district administrators.

• John Cary — 2002-2003 school year — $500 per month/$6,000 per year in-district travel allowance.

• Tim Ricker — 2003-2004 school year — $600 per month/$7,200 per year in-district travel allowance.

Why does Mehlville not require submission of a monthly expense account showing the actual miles traveled — on official business — at so much per mile? This is normal procedure in both business and the state and federal government.

Is this just a way of padding the actual salaries when reporting to the taxpayers?
