MARSHFIELD, WI (WSAU) - City of Marshfield employees have a new compensation plan following Tuesday night’s Common Council meeting. That comes after more than a year of work by consultants and a special ad hoc committee to develop the plan.
Alderman Ed Wagner chaired the Ad Hoc Committee on Employee Compensation, and says the plan increases pay for employees in steps up to a “market pay” rate. The plan also allows for pay-for-performance increases for outstanding employees.
Mayor Chris Meyer said it was important to get the plan right because because it affects the city’s ability to attract top notch employees, and affects everyone on the city payroll.
The new pay plan will be implemented in late October.
