    Cash-strapped MARTA awarded 114 pay raises topping 10%

     

    Atlanta’s rapid-transit agency, which warns of drastic service cuts on the horizon, approved at least 114 pay raises ranging from 10 to 40 percent for 2007-08, according to a legislative oversight committee. More than half went to managers.

    MARTA is asking the General Assembly for permission to tap into $65 million reserved for capital projects to make ends meet in its operating budget. Without that money, the transit agency may need to stop the trains and buses from rolling one day a week, or consider other severe cutbacks.

    At committee meetings Tuesday, legislators hammered MARTA general manager Beverly Scott for pay raises handed out in fiscal year 2007-08, the AJC’s Ariel Hart reported. A committee analysis found 150 non-union employees who received raises ranging from 4 to 41 percent.

    MARTA officials told legislators that the pay hikes were approved in better economic times, and some were tied to promotions. About two dozen had not received a raise in the previous year.

    Asked for more information, a MARTA spokesman said Wednesday night that the agency was still researching the salaries. The data was taken from an annual report (which can be downloaded here) that MARTA delivered to the Legislature and verified as accurate last summer.

    We’ve taken the list and broken out 114 positions that received a pay hike of 10 percent or more. The employees’ names are public record, but they were not disclosed at the legislative hearing and they are not shown here. Raises on this shorter list averaged 18 percent.
