The City of Arroyo Grande is committed to providing competitive and equitable compensation for City employees. The City’s compensation policy is to structure wage rates, benefits, and salary administration systems that are competitive, equitable, and adequate.
The last comprehensive compensation review was conducted in 2017. The City seeks to review current compensation to ensure alignment with the City’s compensation policy, ensuring equitable and competitive wages, and to enable continued retention and attraction of well qualified staff.
Study results will provide the necessary data for objective information for analysis by the City for compensation planning, future budget forecasting, and provide the data needed to facilitate fair discussions with employee groups regarding compensation and benefits.
Additionally, The City of Arroyo Grande is a member of the Five Cities Fire Authority, a three-member Joint Powers Agreement to provide fire services to the communities of Arroyo Grande, Grover Beach, and Oceano. The Five Cities Fire Authority (FCFA) is seeking similar professional consulting services and may be included in this study as an additive alternative proposal.
