Residents angry over utility manager’s salary

GM’s pay bump tops concerns

Middleborough’s gas and electric department has come under intense public scrutiny, following revelations that its commissioners have bumped up its general manager’s pay by $57,000 in three years, making him the highest-paid such municipal employee in the state.

According to nine years of executive session minutes released Friday, general manager John Granahan was making $135,000 annually before July 2008, when he was the department’s business manager. When he became general manager, the Municipal Gas and Electric Commission boosted his salary to $160,000, then to $165,000 for 2009.
