7.1.1  How Many Town of Davie Employees Earn More than $100k per year?

In the Town of Davie, 83 employees earned more than $100,000 per year in 2008.   See the list at http://davie.org (I removed the names of employees, but if you have an inquiring mind, you can do a public records request from the Town Clerk’s office to get the complete list, with names.)

True, there are some anomalies caused by cashing in accrued benefits and the like at termination or retirement.  But also consider that the Town’s significant contributions in the form of other benefits are NOT included in these totals.  

The pie chart at left shows the percentage of employees earning $100,000 or more per year:  Police Department (blue, 43%),  Fire Department (red, 41%),  and Administration or department heads (yellow, 16%).  The chart at right shows that 93% of these employees are male, and 7% are female.

7.1.2  Bike Rally on April 4th

Davie’s Family Bike Rally and Bike Safety Day is this Saturday, April 4, 2009 at 9:00 AM at Robbins Open Space Park, 4005 Hiatus Road, Davie.  There will be a FREE Bike Safety Rodeo from 8:00am to 9:00am and from Noon to 1:00pm.  The
pre-registration is $2.00 per rider and the walk-up fee is $3.00 per rider and includes water, fruit, route map, safety rules, and a cycle inspection.

7.1.3  Subtle Changes

Several cities in South Florida have feuded in recent years over invocations at government meetings.  Davie Town Council meetings haven’t been preceded by an invocation in years.  There was one exception.  At the swearing in ceremony for the Mayor and Town Council, the individual being sworn in
generally designated a member of the clergy to offer an invocation.  There was no invocation at the swearing in ceremony of Mayor Judy Paul, and Councilman Brian Caletka.
