Groveport City Council is considering amending the city’s employee compensation plan and pay scale.
“The city adopted a compensation plan in 2012, which was amended in 2017,” said Groveport City Administrator B.J. King. “As part of the recently completed wage study, Clemans Nelson & Associates reviewed the current compensation plan and made recommendations to amend the current plan structure.”
