A study that could revamp the pay scale for city employees in Warner Robins was presented at a Pre-Council meeting tonight.
The Carl Vinson Institute was commissioned by city government to conduct the study in June 2010. When the findings were presented at the end of that year, the mayor and council asked researchers to make the pay scale competitive without such extensive pay increases.
The six different recommendations did cut the cost of the salaries initially presented, while keeping them competitive in comparison to similar communities.
"What we'll do is get with the council and see what plan coincides with our benefits package, and how we can get the funds to it," says Mayor Chuck Shaheen.
Councilman Bob Wilbanks, who pushed for the study, says he hopes the council will move forward with the most competitive implementation of the plan. It calls for an annual increase of a little over a million dollars per year.
