At next week’s Council meeting, the Council will consider approving a Unified pay Plan for City Employees, provide a 2% across the board increase and continue step and merit increases as proposed in the new pay plan.

In FY17 the City Council approved a Compensation and Classification Study to determine if the salaries paid to City employees are competitive. The study recommends a new pay plan which cost approximately $100,000 in FY2017.

Additionally, all employees will receive a 2% increase effective July 1, 2017, as a result of the collective bargaining agreement. Employees will also receive merit increases on their anniversary dates; these are expected to average 2.2%.
