Battistelli's "pourboire" as deputy mayor

Summary: Further revelations from the archives of the municipal council of Saint-Germain-en-Laye

Another interesting document has come to light during a recent trawl through the archives of the municipal council of Saint-Germain-en-Laye.



Resolution no. 18-A-03 [PDF] entitled "Maintien des indemnités de fonction au maire, aux adjoints au maire et aux conseillers muncipaux délégués" contains details of the official allowances paid to the mayor, deputy mayors and delegated municipal councillors.

"Another interesting document has come to light during a recent trawl through the archives of the municipal council of Saint-Germain-en-Laye."The amount of remuneration paid to these elected officials is expressed as a percentage of a reference figure which in bureaucratic jargon is known as the "terminal gross index of the local civil service index scale" ("l’indice brut terminal de l’échelle indiciaire FPT").

According to informed sources the reference figure for 2018 is approximately 4000 Euros per month.

According to resolution no. 18-A-03 the mayor of Saint-Germain, Mr. Arnaud Péricard is entitled to 108% of the reference sum and his deputy mayors are each awarded 35.33 % which would be about 1400 Euros per month whereas delegated councillors (i.e. those with special duties) only get a 8.54 %.

"According to informed sources the reference figure for 2018 is approximately 4000 Euros per month."What this means is that following Battistelli's election as deputy mayor in October 2018 his monthly allowance as an elected official has increased almost fourfold compared to his previous position as delegated councillor responsible for theatre where he would only have been entitled to a measly few hundred Euros per month.

It goes without saying that Battistelli's supplementary income as a deputy mayor in Saint-Germain-en-Laye is "small potatoes" compared to his whopping salary as EPO President which he claims is 300 000 Euros per year "without any bonuses" - although this cannot be independently verified because very few people apart from Jesper Kongstad have ever seen his contract which to this very day remains shrouded in mystery and speculation. [PDF]

But his allowance as deputy mayor undoubtedly counts as handy "pocket money" and a nice little perquisite or, as they might say in France, a "pourboire" which should cover the cost of a few bottles of expensive wine for which the reputedly bibulous Battistelli is said to have a strong "penchant".

Old wine

Unfortunately his deputy mayor's allowance probably won't stretch far enough to cover more expensive vintages like the 1989 Chateau Mouton-Rothschild Pauillac which has been known to retail for over €£6000 a case.

Old wine

However with a bit of luck someone might discover a few creative accounting tricks which will allow the EPO to be invoiced for that kind of extravagance when Battistelli is entertaining his "friends" from the Administrative Council and networking with the movers and shakers of the IP world...
