Council shall determine the pay plan in the form of a resolution and, from time to time, may amend the plan by resolution. The pay plan shall be reexamined periodically in the light of pay rates for comparable positions in private employment in the area, the pay practices of other public jurisdictions, and changes in living costs.
The beginning pay rate for an employee in any class shall be the basic rate for that class.
If a permanent employee is not performing satisfactorily, his department head may recommend to the Manager that a regular scheduled pay increase be withheld from the employee pending the accomplishment of satisfactory performance by the employee. In those instances, the department head shall select either of the following two options: a lesser increase or no increase; shall notify the Manager in writing of the recommended action in withholding a full pay increase; and shall state the reasons for the recommendation. If the Manager approves the recommendation of the department head, the Manager shall notify the employee in writing of the action to be taken and shall furnish the department head with a copy of the notice.
The Manager shall establish pay periods for all employees.
