Salary & Benefits Survey Results Are Now Available!

The 2014 Salary & Benefits Survey is open and available for
access. Participating cities will receive their user name and passwords for accessing the updated data via a letter mailed to the top appointed official and/or HR manager on May 12, 2014.

Jurisdictions unable to enter 2014 salary data prior to the deadline of April 25, 2014, can still enter their jurisdiction’s salary and benefit data. When an organization makes updates, please contact Mindy Corby ( or (651) 281-1217) or Joyce Hottinger ( or (651) 281-1216), so we can ensure the updated data gets posted as soon as possible. For additional information regarding access codes, please refer to the “Need a Data Entry Code” question at the link below. New data entered by jurisdictions takes approximately two weeks to post live to the survey.
