Independent Salary Commission Meeting

The Independent Salary Commission meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, September 13, 2017 at 5:30 p.m. at Olympia City Hall, Room 207, 601 4th Avenue East, Olympia.


What is the Independent Salary Commission?

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.


Previous meetings were held on August 3, 2017 and August 24, 2017.
