The Menlo Park City Council could tonight approve major raises for city employees referred to as "unrepresented management."
There are about 25 authorized full-time positions that fall into this category – six of which are vacant. Staff say the move is intended to adjust the salary ranges to "achieve greater consistency within the management hierarchy" and provide market-based salary adjustments. Moving any employee to a new salary level would not take effect until July and August, when annual merit reviews are conducted, according to the staff report.
The proposed maximum salary increases to the city's salary schedule, based on position, are as follows:
● Administrative Services Director, to $215,426 from $190,066
● Assistant City Manager, to $236,969 from $211,761
● Assistant Community Development Director, to $172,341 from $156,644
