Section II: The pay range, salary increments/steps for all positions and each pay range as previously adopted shall be and hereby are abolished.
Section III: On or before the 1st day of September of each year, the Council shall act by Resolution to approve a maximum annual compensation adjustment. The maximum annual compensation adjustment shall be comprised of two parts: a cost of living adjustment and a performance adjustment. The maximum annual compensation adjustment shall be expressed as a percentage increase. Any annual compensation adjustment shall be based upon the availability of funds for the next fiscal year and shall be effective with the first pay received after the beginning of that fiscal year. Section IV: The pay grade ranges shall be modified annually on January 1st of each year by the cost of living adjustment component of the maximum annual compensation adjustment approved by the Council by September 1st of the preceding year.
Section V: Upon approval of the maximum annual compensation adjustment by Council, the Village Manager, or his/her designee, shall review the performance of each Village employee and approve annual raises for each in an amount not to exceed the maximum annual compensation adjustment increase. It is Council’s expressed intention that less meritorious performance shall receive an annual raise less then the maximum annual compensation adjustment increase and that fully successful and better performance shall receive consideration for the maximum annual compensation adjustment increase.
Section VI: This resolution shall take effect and be in force immediately upon passage.
