Purpose

As authorized by RCW 35.21.015, the DuPont Salary Commission was established by Ordinance in 2005 to set the salaries for the City's elected officials. The commission shall convene and review the salaries of the Mayor and City Councilmembers once every five (5) years, or sooner when directed to do so by the majority of the City Council. Any change in salary shall be filed by the commission with the City Clerk and shall become effective without further action of the City Council. Any recommended salary increases go into effect immediately for the Mayor and City Councilmembers regardless of their terms. Salary decreases established by the commission shall become effective as to incumbent elected officials at the commencement of their next subsequent terms of office.
