In preparation for the onset of the search for a new city administrator, Camas officials are proposing a 4 percent increase to the position’s annual pay scale.
On Monday, the City Council will vote on a resolution that would boost the salary to a range that starts at $9,464 and tops out at $11,300. The current scale is $9,088 to $10,852.
City Administrator Lloyd Halverson, who announced in January his plans to retire from full-time work in September after 23 years on the job, said he supports the adjustment.
“I think it is in the city’s best interest to be sure that we are competitive in the pay we offer in this decision,” he said during a recent City Council meeting.
During the process of analyzing the current pay scale, Halverson said research was done using comparatives from about a dozen other Washington jurisdictions.
