Progressive Salary Administration

With acceptable performance, automatic salary increases occur at six months (end of probation), twelve months and twenty-four months.

The salary schedule may be modified for cost of living adjustments in April and October, capped at 5% annually.

The Wellness Program includes an annual health risk appraisal screening. The Town also offers a wellness program through Interactive Health to all employees and spouses covered on the group health insurance. This program provides fun, interactive challenges, in addition to access to personal health coaching, a trainer, and a dietician.
