Class & Comp

Compensation Study Update: A comprehensive compensation study including pay structure, benchmark market wage analysis and compensation policies was commissioned at the end of 2019.  The work began in the Spring of 2020 with an analysis of the City’s current information.  Over the course of the next year revised pay structures were recommended and developed.  Benchmark market data was collected by the consultant for 134 City positions and City pay ranges modified as identified to improve our competitive position for recruitment and retention.  This work resulted in the elimination of both the Broadband and Multi-Skilled Worker pay systems (MSW to be phased out by October 31, 2021) and adoption of one Regular Pay Plan for all positions except public safety personnel, and competitive Step Pay Plans for Police and Fire public safety personnel.   Compression adjustment methodologies were also identified, budgeted and implemented to address salary compaction whereby longer-tenured employees were compacted into the lowest quadrants of the pay ranges.


New Fiscal Year 2022 pay plans have been posted in the Compensation tab


Merits: 3% merit increases were approved for FY 2021-2022 for the Regular pay plan.  Police and Fire public safety personnel in Step Plans are also approved for merit step increases.  Eligibility for a merit increase is contingent upon receiving an overall performance evaluation rating of 2 or higher.
