The Battle Ground City Council recently adopted an ordinance establishing a Salary Commission and are seeking applications from residents interested serving on the new established board.
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.
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 board, however, initial members will serve staggered terms of one, two, and three years.
Detailed information about the Salary Commission and an application to serve is available online at www.cityofbg.org/485/Salary-Commission.
