City manager gets one-time merit increase
Claremont City Manager Tony Ramos received an early holiday gift in the form of a one-time $28,646 bonus from the city during the December 8 city council meeting.

The bonus includes a $17,467 merit award equal to eight percent of Mr. Ramos’ annual salary, plus a cash-out of 100 hours of leave pay, or $11,179, according to city records.
Mr. Ramos will receive the $28,646 on top of his annual salary of $259,425. His total pay and benefits amounted to $331,356 in 2014, according to Transparent California.
