Hamburg Township Revisits WALLY & Approves Salary Survey

7/7/14 - The Hamburg Township Board of Trustee received and filed a report at their meeting last week on the Washtenaw and Livingston Rail Line provided by the Friends of WALLY. The commuter rail line is being proposed as an option to adding a third lane to US 23. Township Supervisor Pat Hohl tells WHMI the rail line would offer a rush hour alternative to township residents. If the WALLY project is approved, the proposed Hamburg depot will be located in the Village Center district near Winklehaus Park. In other Township business, Trustees approved spending $9,000 on a salary survey. Rahmberg Stover and Associates will conduct the study on behalf of the township. Hohl said it is time to update the salary survey done in 2004. He added several positions listed in the old survey no longer exist or have been merged with others. Each job in the township will adhere to a range comprised of 11 steps. Compensation will be based on an individual’s education, time and grade. During the meeting, Trustee Michael Dolan asked Hohl if the township would follow the survey recommendations. Hohl stated, "the township is committed to following the survey so that people out of their range will be brought within range." (LR/JK)
