Study: $64K Will Make F.C. Salaries Competitive

A study presented at Monday’s Falls Church City Council work session by the Management Advisory Group shows that an additional $23,237 in the current fiscal year and $64,712 in the upcoming year will bring all City employee positions fully comparable with those of surrounding jurisdictions. In the first such study commissioned by the City since 1998, a total of 33 City employees are identified to receive modest pay increases to make the City fully salary competitive.

The study called for a plan to place each police officer (sergeant and below) on the next higher step on the group-proposed new Police Pay Plan, but that “the overall findings of MAG are the City’s compensation is competitive with surrounding jurisdictions so no major adjustment is needed.”
