For the past several years, salary ranges of Pasadena city employees have been available on the Human Resources Department page of the city website.
To make it easier for anyone to find the information, an easy-to-remember shortcut link has been established – www.cityofpasadena.net/salaries – in the wake of the salary scandal in Bell, Calif.
The information has also been placed on the home page of the city website: www.cityofpasadena.net (under FYI Pasadena).
“I am committed to a transparent and open organization,” Pasadena City Manager Michael J. Beck said. “It is important to me for the community to have confidence in that openness.”
More than 2,000 city employees work in 14 departments. The web page includes a database of job titles, salary ranges and descriptions of the positions. There is also a search bar where job titles may be entered.
Pasadena is a full-service city with 15 departments and an expectation that many employees, mostly at the management level, often work evenings and weekends without the benefit of overtime.
“The city of Pasadena aims to provide fair salaries for our dedicated and talented workforce,” Beck added.
He will continue to pursue policies and programs that further open government in Pasadena.
