NL employees receive FY14 pay increases

r
NORTH LIBERTY– At its June 26 meeting, the North Liberty City Council unanimously approved fiscal year 2014 salaries for city staff.
The resolution called for a two percent cost of living increase for all city employees, with an additional 2.45 percent longevity increase for those who are eligible.
In 2007, North Liberty hired the Kansas City-based Austin Peters Group to conduct a study of compensation rates for city staff. Based on the company’s report, the city approved several measures that resulted in more wages for city staff: pay rates for several positions were adjusted upward to be at a minimum compared to like positions in similar-sized cities; part-time employees’ hourly rates were increased to be more competitive in the area’s job market; and the city created a stepped rate structure to adjust for longevity for employees who experience positive performance reviews.
The approved salaries went into effect on July 1. The new salaries for all full-time employees and most part-time employees– excluding seasonal staff and part-time recreation counselors– are as follows:
