Subject: Paying BCA members?


Hi all,


I’m interested in information from communities who pay BCA members to attend meetings/work at polls/etc.  Barre City currently pays minimum wage for workers at the polls (both BCA and non), but we don’t pay for attendance at tax appeals, inspections, board of abatement appeals or mileage.


Please share with me what your community does.
