Study says city of Farmington should be paying higher wages


A recent study of the salaries of city of Farmington employees suggests that a few changes be made to the salary structure to bring local wages more in line with market standards.

Conducted by the consultant group Fox Lawson, the wage study findings were presented to the Farmington City Council at a workshop in October. The study indicates that many of Farmington’s salaries are under the market average and should be adjusted to be more competitive.
