Armstrong`s Mayor is inviting the public to review the city`s financial report online. The report presented to council Monday night outlines costs of the city and salaries of council members and staff. Mayor Chris Pieper thinks the community is getting good value for money spent. “I think it shows that in both our remuneration of councillors and the expenses of councillors.“ Total councillor expenses were just over 11 thousand dollars for 2016. Mayor Pieper says as far as staff goes, the city is in line with other communities its size. He says they have a small staff but they`re busy. “They do a little bit of everything. We have in our finance department, we have one and a half people. In public works, it`s pretty lean.“ As far as staff salaries go, they come in at just one one million dollars.
