well, very well compensated employees

All this does not add the 75% health insurance or the economy tax busting 80% (ave best three years salary over career) retirement package. defined benefits. we will hear al the employees drone on about how hard they work- and they do. But no one will be able to work hard enough and have a housing market or overrides or well much of anything with the pensions coming on more and more every year. what is this not a tracked and publicly well-understood number of dollars and % of budget?

Just a quick offering. The salaries and benefits of Acton town employees are negotiated by people we elect -- or by people hired by them. If we believe town employees are paid too much or have retirement packages that are too good then we should vote differently. We live in a democracy. We are responsible for the actions of the people whom we elect.
