College Station city manager receives 10% raise
Eagle Staff Report
The College Station City Council recently gave City Manager Tom Brymer a 10 percent pay raise after three years without a performance increase.
The council unanimously decided to increase Brymer’s salary to $145,813 for 2005, up from $132,558. Brymer’s contract also was renewed for another year.
Brymer’s salary was raised at the end of 2003 by 1 percent, as were the salaries of all city employees, to cover a percentage-point increase in what employees contribute to retirement funds. Brymer, who has been city manager for five years, last received a raise based on performance in October 2001, when his salary increased from $125,000 to $131,250.
Mayor Ron Silvia said the council has been pleased with Brymer’s work in managing the city. Council members also compared the salary to what other cities paid city managers to help bring Brymer’s pay in line, Silvia said.
The council appoints and conducts annual reviews of four city employees.
Council members will review the city attorney, city secretary and municipal judge in closed sessions beginning in November, with any pay increases effective Oct. 1.
