Compensation & Benefits Information

This information is available online as part of the regular public agenda system. In the interest of greater transparency, we have created this page to assist the public in finding this information more readily. Every two years, the City utilizes an independent compensation consultant firm to conduct a labor market review to establish and update the City’s pay structures. This market data, combined with job analysis and internal salary relationships, are used to determine appropriate pay grades for City jobs. As of December 2011, employees contribute all of the 7% employee share towards their PERS retirement benefit.
