Class & Comp

On behalf of the Budget Team we are pleased to advise everyone that on February 16, 2021 the City Council approved a resolution to back one stage out of our recession plan, from the Significant Stage to the Moderate Stage.  Among the many things this means, effective February 21, 2021 the City will implement the budgeted 2% Cost of Living Adjustment (COLA) for all eligible City personnel hired prior to 2/21/21 (except those under a specific contract that stipulates a specific compensation program). Eligible employees including Temps will see the 2% as an increase to their hourly wage.


This approval also releases the Fiscal Year 2021 budgeted and approved Rezones and Skill Block advances to be implemented.  These Rezones and Skill Blocks will also be effective on 2/21/21 for everyone that has already met the rezone or skill block requirements, and paperwork has been completed and submitted to Human Resources.  For those employees that have not met the requirements prior to 2/21/21, increases will be processed once those requirements have been met and the completed paperwork is submitted to Human Resources for processing and approval (requirements must be achieved prior to June 30, 2021).


Thank you to all for your work, and for supporting the recession plan strategy that has facilitated our ability to implement these compensation increases at this time.
