Salary Commission Committee
The Salary Commission is a group of Yelm citizens, appointed by the Yelm Mayor and confirmed by the Yelm City Council to set the salaries of elected officials. The commission improves government transparency by creating a process to compare the salaries of local officials to those of similar municipalities.
Council members can file a referendum within 30 days if they disagree with the commission, otherwise the salary will take effect immediately if increased. If the commission decides to decrease the salary of an elected official, the new salary will not take effect until their term has ended.
The Commission shall convene every four years. (Last meeting date December 31, 2018)
Current members of the Salary Commission are:
- Ashley Brooks
- Ken McCulloch
- Tracie Choate
