Increase Select Department Head Salaries - YES

As a general, informal policy, we traditionally try to keep the pay for Corte Madera's Town staff at or near the median in Marin and the larger North Bay region. This is an important balancing act: it's important to recognize staff for their performance (generally exceptional) and not lose talented and well-trained staff to other agencies, while conserving taxpayer funds.


In light of these considerations, I voted to make the following adjustments to the salaries of three department heads:


Parks & Recreation Department: a corrective increase of 10%, as the position's salary was 16% below the regional median. This was an increase of $14,500/year, from $145,500 to $160,000.


Planning & Building Department: an increase of 0.8% to make the compensation equal to that of the Public Works Director, as the positions have comparable duties and responsibilities. This was an increase of $1,600/year, from $194,700 to $196,300.


Finance Department: an increase of 0.8% to make the compensation equal to that of the Public Works Director, as the positions have comparable duties and responsibilities. This was an increase of $1,600/year, from $194,700 to $196,300.
