Compensation for city employees is based upon a philosophy of recruiting a small, highly qualified staff, providing competitive compensation, and expecting a high level of work performance. The City Council has established a compensation policy that supports and recognizes innovation and exceptional performance. It is the City Council's policy that compensation is based on performance, therefore, individual compensation adjustments are not automatic, step-oriented or based on cost-of-living adjustments.
The city's practice is to provide a mix of base salary, additional cash and benefits that is generally competitive with the labor market. When evaluating benefits, the city will consider both the cost and the content of the benefits.
Citrus Heights provides a competitive benefit package that is reviewed and enhanced routinely.
