The City of Elkhorn Human Resources Committee voted in favor of recommending to the council an adjustment be made to update the city’s wage and compensation plan at its Nov. 6 meeting.

City Administrator Sam Tapson said the structural adjustment to the compensation plan would include shifting pay ranges for positions. He said the city had selected a marketplace measure of competitiveness with a midpoint at the 65th percentile – substantially higher than most communities, which has helped keep the plan in balance since it was put in place about three years ago.

Looking at the cost to the city to do a structural adjustment this year, Tapson said at the end of the day the effect would actually be fairly negligible. He said that not including the library, the estimated total cost would be just under $4,300 to bring about four employees in line with the adjusted pay ranges, only about $2,300 of which would be the General Fund’s portion.
