City gives go-ahead for study

July 13, 2005|by GREGORY T. SIMMONS

The Hagerstown City Council gave the go-ahead Tuesday to link a paid study of city employee compensation with plans to form a task force to look at overall efficiencies in city government.

City Human Resources Director Donna Messina was given approval by the council to seek bids for a private company that would perform the compensation study.

The study first was discussed by the previous mayor and council in April, in light of several pay discrepancies among union employees and some nonunion supervisors who were earning less than union members they were supervising.

Mayor Richard F. Trump in June announced an effort to form a task force to look at ways to make the city government more efficient. The announcement came after council members Kelly S. Cromer and Penny M. Nigh questioned the need to fill a management position that opened earlier this year.
