The Vermillion City Council approved the city’s 2020 Payroll Resolution at its regular meeting Monday, Jan. 6 in city hall.

State statute requires the publication of the complete list of all salaries of officers and employees of the city. The city of Vermillion has traditionally passed a resolution at the first city council meeting of the year adopting the salaries, which is then included in the meeting minutes.

A change in employee pay during the course of the year is reported with the City Council minutes following the adjustment.

“Generally speaking, there’s about a 2.5 percent COLA (Cost Of Living Adjustment) for council members, non-union and union employees,” City Manager John Prescott said. “There’s a few that are slightly more than that and a few that are slightly less as we were correcting some of the scales with the current union agreements which expire at the end of 2021.”

He praised Administrative Assistant Marty Washington for her assistance.

“This is a long process; she tediously goes through this with all of the department heads to make sure we get all of this information correct,” he said. “We need to thank Marty for her diligent efforts.”

Three-year collective bargaining agreements were negotiated and approved by the city council in November and December 2018. The city has two collective bargaining agreements with AFSCME and one collective bargaining agreement with FOP. All three agreements cover the years of 2019, 2020 and 2021.

The agreements generally provide for a 2.5 percent cost of living adjustment in 2020 for employees covered by either of the two AFSCME agreement and the FOP agreement, according to memo from Prescott to city council members that was included with the Jan. 6 agenda. Some employees may receive slightly more or slightly less than 2.5 percent change in their wage as corrections are made to the pay schedules to develop a consistent format, he wrote.

He added that for the last several years, the city council has received the same cost of living adjustment that has been provided to employees. The payroll resolution includes a 2.5 percent increase in city council wages for 2020.

The payroll information in the resolution includes:
