  1. Compensation Study

The City contracted with Victoria McGrath from McGrath Human Resource Group last year to develop a compensation plan for the City.  Victoria presented results of plan information and the process to come up with a plan for the City.  The Commission and City Manager discussed plan information presented.  Mayor Thompson thanked Victoria for the information.  Kent stated, the League of Kansas Municipalities recently completed a study.  There is bulk of information included in the results.  I have been working to condense information for a comparison to Victoria’s information.    This information will provide insight and support to Victoria’s information.  Bottom line the City needs a plan to follow and a plan that we can support.  No formal action was taken by the City Commission.

ADJOURNMENT WAS HAD ON A MOTION BY Commissioner Redlin seconded by Commissioner Showalter.  Motion carried by unanimous VOTE, meeting adjourned at 7:05 p.m.
