|REFERRAL TO THE FINANCE AND ECONOMIC RESILIENCY COMMITTEE FOR A DISCUSSION ON THE LIVING WAGE RATES FOR CALENDAR YEAR 2022, IN ACCORDANCE WITH CHAPTER 2, ARTICLE VI, DIVISION 6, SECTION 2-4, OF THE CITY CODE.
|The Administration recommends that the City Commission approve the referral for a discussion on the living wage rates beginning January 1, 2022 to the Finance and Economic Resiliency Committee.
The current living wage rates, approved on September 16, 2020 by City Commission, are $15.15 per hour without health care benefits or $11.90 per hour with health care benefits of at least $3.25 per hour.
Pursuant to Sec. 2-408(d) of the City Code, the City Commission must consider annually whether or not to increase the wage rates and health care benefits certain contractors will be required to pay employees for the subsequent calendar year.
The City's past practice has been that the Finance and Economic Resiliency Committee considers possible rate increases and the corresponding fiscal impact, and makes a recommendation to the City Commission on the wage rates and health care benefits that will be implemented beginning January 1 of the subsequent calendar year. An analysis of rates and fiscal impact will be presented for the Committee's discussion and recommendation.
