Council Approved Changes To Payroll Ordinance

At their regular meeting last Monday, Eureka city councilmembers voted to make several additions to the payroll ordinance for city employees. Last month, city administrator Ian Martell informed the council that several employees were at or near the top “step” for their position and will have no longer have any room for advancement. In recent meetings, the council has discussed possible changes to the payroll ordinance, including adding more steps, increasing starting pay, and making the steps more consistent. Martell presented his recommended changes, which included adding steps to the following positions: city clerk, assistant city clerk, secretary and/or billing clerk, and street department maintenance. For each position, Martell figured the average change between levels and added that average amount to the top step in order to create a new top step. He also recommended that the council consider making additional changes towards the end of the year when they consider making a cost of living adjustment.
