Coconut Creek City Manager David Rivera wants big salary to get bigger

By Buddy Nevins, BrowardBeat - The city manager of Coconut Creek has a big, expensive Valentine Day’s gift for taxpayers.

The only question is whether city commissioners will accept it.

Manager David Rivera’s evaluation is scheduled for Feb. 14. It could result in an 8 percent raise on his already huge salary.

Rivera was paid $359,288 in salary and benefits in 2012, up from $328,495 in 2010.
