[ARCHIVED] Petersburg Launches Updated Class and Compensation Plan for Employees

The City of Petersburg announced this week updates to the citywide classification and compensation plan. Petersburg City Council approved and adopted the plan on Tuesday, December 8. Employees who fall below the minimum for the classification will receive a salary adjustment to bring them to the new minimum pay grade. The plan provides an appropriate classification and compensation system and play plan based on current compensation levels for similar public sector employees, municipalities and local market competitors. The last time this plan was updated in the late 1980s.

“The City recognizes the hard work of all of our employees and it is vital that we provide benefits that make us competitive with other employers,” comments City Manager William E. Johnson, III. “Also, the City is obligated to ensure all employees receive the new minimum salary rate for their position.”

Other features of the updates class and compensation plan include: eliminating the step pay plan structure and creating an open range pay plan structure, create two pay plan structures for general employees and all sworn (police and fire) employees and revise and update all of the city’s job descriptions to reflect the actual duties and responsibilities that are being performed and to rank and place each job in the new compensation system.
