Wagga’s newly appointed general manager Peter Thompson will take home $350,000 per year for the next five year in the role.

Mayor Greg Conkey said the package “includes a car, superannuation and everything” else that comes with a council-appointed position.

Former general manager Alan Eldridge managed to negotiate a package worth almost $400,000, one of the biggest in Wagga council’s history for a general manager.
