At the Mexico City Council work session, the board hear from Rebecca Crowder, co-owner and president of the Austin Peters Group that was contracted to do a compensation study for the city.
The findings showed that Mexico was at the 40th percentile of the market, with hourly employees 4.6% behind the median for similar communities and public safety is 9.6% behind.
The study included an employee survey ranking things most important to staff. The top three were retirement, job security and wages. Crowder reports she doesn’t see job security in the top 3 list very often.
The council asked for more information before approving changes to the compensation schedule.
In the regular session, the taxable industrial revenue bonds were awarded to Spartan Light Metals for a new facility to be built adjacent to the current building. The bond amount is 110 million dollars.
