KELOWNA - Ron Mattiussi retired from his job as Kelowna city manager at the end of March 2018 but was still paid almost $151,000 last year.

That makes him the 12th highest paid manager out of the 133 managers with the City of Kelowna who made more than $75,000 in 2018.

Each year, all B.C. cities are required to publish the salaries of employees who make more than $75,000.

While it may seem a lot for three month’s work, it included unused vacation pay Mattiussi had accumulated over the years, meaning he was paid until near the end of May, Stuart Leatherdale, the city’s director of human resources told

Employees are required to take most of their annual vacations but can bank some as well, Leatherdale said.

Mattiussi was the city’s highest paid employee in 2017, earning $306,550.

He’s currently the acting chief administrative officer for the District of Summerland.
