Consider approving a 5% mid-year salary increase and a one-time retention payment to full and part-time City of Harrisonburg employees.

Presented By:  Ande Banks, Interim City Manager

Recommendation and Review

This agenda item is to follow up on the recommendation made by City staff during the February 22, 2022 City Council meeting for a 5% mid-year salary increase and the consideration of a one-time retention payment in the amount of $3000 for full-time employees and $1500 for part-time employees.  The retention payment is proposed to utilize American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funding where eligible.

 

This recommendation was made out of a continued effort to be a competitive employer during a historically difficult time for recruitment and retention of employees.
