Living Wage Program

On June 25, 2019, City Council adopted a Living Wage Program to benefit the health and well-being of everyone who performs work on the city’s behalf. 

As part of seeking Living Wage Employer Certification, we are committed to transitioning all affected staff and contracted services employees to a living wage.
