From the Waterloo Courier:
In attempt to match the salaries of peers around the state, Hawkeye Community College President Greg Schmitz was given a 13.16 percent raise Tuesday with the promise of more money upon completing his doctorate.
The board of trustees unanimously boosted his salary and benefits $25,000 to $215,000 for the fiscal year starting Sunday following an hour-long closed session.
And from the Iowa City Press-Citizen:
Iowa City School District Superintendent Lane Plugge’s work on seeing the 1-cent schools sales tax approved by voters has helped earn him a raise.
The school board voted 4-2 to give Plugge a 7.5 percent pay hike after a closed session discussion Tuesday night. The increase will boost his base salary to $163,400, up from the $152,000 he was making during the last year, board president Toni Cilek said. The board gave Plugge a 9 percent raise last year.
And don't forget Sally "Tiny Bubbles" Mason, who is getting 50% or more in salary and perks than previous UI President David Skorton.
