1) Please state the amount of the taxpayers money the city is throwing away by hiring another consulting firm to make sure employee salaries are competitive? And please, do not tell me that because other cities do it, so shall Frisco. I thought we were different?
2) Canít the six-figured department directors figure out where the salaries need to be? They teach this in college level Human Resources classes.
3) Why not take the funds that would have been used to pay for the over-priced consultant and help adjust employee salaries? I am sure the employees will be quite happy with that idea.

The contract with the compensation consultant is not to exceed $11,300. The City of Frisco decided to hire a consultant to look at some specific areas of concern and to evaluate the City's market adjustments policy in comparison with our neighboring cities. The City of Frisco has not had a consultant work on the pay plans since 2001 when a complete revamp of our pay plans and job descriptions were done. Since 2001, HR staff as conducted the salary surveys and made the recommended market adjustments - not a consultant.
