Salary jump for Nipomo manager
July 22, 2014
The general manager of the Nipomo Community Services District is in line for a raise of more than $14,000 on Wednesday.
Michael LeBrun, who has served as the district’s permanent general manager since 2011, currently makes a base salary of $150,000. The Nipomo CSD board will decide Wednesday whether to raise LeBrun’s salary to $164,140, as proposed in a district staff report.
If LeBrun receives the raise, his salary will have increased approximately $30,000 in three years on the job. LeBrun began his job in 2011 with a salary of $134,700.
Until Paavo Ogren took over this week as the Oceano CSD general manager, LeBrun received the highest pay among CSD managers in the county. Ogren now makes $196,000 at his Oceano position.
LeBrun, though, supervises a larger operation with more employees. The district is also constructing an approximately $18 million pipeline that will connect the Nipomo Mesa to Santa Maria.
