Salary Commission

On December 6 2021, the Battle Ground City Council adopted Ordinance 2021-40 establishing a Salary Commission.

The Commission is a 3-member volunteer board that meets at least annually to review and determine the salaries and health insurance benefits provided by the City to its elected officials.

Membership & Terms

Commission members must reside within the city of Battle Ground. Members shall not be an officer, official or employee of the City of Battle Ground, nor an immediate relative of an officer, official or employee of the City.

Members serve without compensation and are appointed by the Mayor with approval from the city council to serve a 3-year term.  As a newly established commission, however, initial members will serve staggered terms of one, two, and three years.

Detailed information about the Salary Commission is available within Ordinance 2021-40: Establishing a Salary Commission.
