BATTLEFORD — At their Jan. 23, meeting, Battleford town council approved administration's recommendation of a 1.5 per cent salary increase for out-of-scope employees in 2023.
These positions include:
- Finance Manager;
- Public Works Manager;
- Utilities Manager;
- Parks and Recreation Manager;
- Public Safety Officer;
- Finance Supervisor;
- Executive Assistant;
- Finance Officer;
- Museum Manager; and
- Deputy Fire Chief.
According to Town of Battleford documents, the 2023 total salary remuneration increase for all out-of-scope employees is approximately $8,670, which was included in the approved 2023 budget.
Out-of-scope staff salary is lower than the approved salary grid, with only one exception – utility manager is a little above the salary grid.
Councillor Laing felt that the request was “pretty straightforward", adding, “We've talked a little bit about this before, and it’s good to see it come back to council … I'm glad it’s put to bed for now.”
