Living Wage implementation: FY07, 3.3%; FY08, 3%; FY09, 3%; FY10, 0%. The
current federal and state minimum wage is $7.25 per hour. The minimum
hourly wage for City employees in the lowest pay grade is $11.24 per hour.
The lowest paid employees are newer entry level employees who currently
earn $11.95 per hour. Should the council consider adjusting the Living
