OGDENSBURG, N.Y. — Michael J. O’Neil, director of Lisbon Beach and Campground in Ogdensburg, is defending his request for a 52 percent raise next year, saying the amount of time he dedicates to the job warrants the increase, writes WatertownDailyTimes.com.
“I work seven days a week from mid-April to October 15,” O’Neil said. “In the summertime I’m here working at least 16 hours a day.”
O’Neil currently makes $13,000 and asked to have that increased to roughly $20,000 per year, reports WatertownDailyTimes.com. He said his current salary equates to much less than the state minimum wage of $7.25.
Council is expected to discuss his salary at Wednesday’s meeting.
