Independent Salary Commission Meeting

The Independent Salary Commission meeting is scheduled for Thursday, August 24, 2017 at 5:30 p.m. at Olympia City Hall, Room 112, 601 4th Avenue East, Olympia.

 

On July 18, 2017, the Olympia City Council passed an ordinance (OMC Title 2.05) establishing an Independent Salary Commission. The purpose of the Independent Salary Commission is to study Council members’ salaries and benefits comparable to other city councils and market conditions. The Commission is comprised of five members from the community that are independent from the City Council. Independent Salary Commission members will listen to public input, evaluate Council compensation and file a salary schedule with the City Clerk on or before October 1, 2017.
