Lake City To Look At Pay, Benefits

Item: A closer look at pay: Coeur d'Alene mayor forms wage and benefit study committee/Jeff Selle, Coeur d'Alene Press

More Info: The wages and benefits of city of Coeur d'Alene employees are coming under analysis, but labor contracts aren't in danger. Cd'A Mayor Steve Widmyer established a new internal committee Wednesday to study how the city's wage and benefit structure compares to the marketplace. "It's not my intent to be busting any existing contracts or anything like that," Widmyer said. "I just want to see where exactly we are in the marketplace for every position we have." He said he also wants to look at every benefit full-time employees receive and compare those to what other cities offer.

Question: Do you think the city pays its employees well?
