Everett City salaries

Everett’s Citizens Commission on Salaries of Elected Officials will hold two public hearings.

Today the City of Everett Salary Commission was set to have its first organizational meeting of the year. The commission meets every other year and is charged with reviewing and establishing the salaries of the City’s elected officials, who include seven City Council members, the Mayor and two Municipal Court judges. The Commission is required to complete its work by the first week in May. There will be two public hearings where residents of Everett can weigh in with their opinion on elected officials salaries. The Commission members include Morrie Trautman, Chuck Patten, Larry Jubie, Caroline Mason, Catherine Havener, June Robinson and Angie Sievers. They are all volunteers who were appointed by the Mayor and confirmed by the Everett City Council. Everett has been deciding its elected officials salaries this way since 1996 after a charter review was approved by voters.

Here are the current listed salaries for Everett’s elected officials as approved by the Everett Salary Commission in 2013.

Mayor’s salary for 2015 is $13,919.00 per month

City Council members’ salary for 2015 is $2247.04 per month

The salary for the City Council member designated as City Council President/Mayor Pro Tem is and shall be thirty percent (30%) in addition to his/her salary as a City Council member.

The salary for a full – time Everett Municipal Court Judge shall be equal to that of a Washington State District Court Judge (currently $141,710 per year) and shall automatically be adjusted at such times and with the same effective dates as any adjustment to the salary of Washington State District Court Judges.

The salary for a part – time Everett Municipal Court Judge shall be calculated on the pro – rated share of this full – time salary.

All meetings are open to the public but there will only be public testimony heard at two specific public hearings. We’ll let you know when those dates are released.
