On Tuesday, the Antioch City Council will decide on whether or not Antioch City Manager Ron Bernal will get a $20,000 raise.
According to the agenda item, the Council is being recommended to approve a resolution to approving the First Amendment to the Employment Agreement with Bernal.
Bernal is currently making $230,000 after being hired on May 9, 2017. The employment agreement on Tuesday would increase his annual salary to $250,000–a one year contract extension through May 9, 2019. This comes following a closed session meeting on May 8, 2018 following his performance evaluation.
The following list of City Managers were used as part of the salary survey:
- $281,507 – Richmond
- $274,104 – Concord
- $257,760 – Pittsburg
- $254,000 – Walnut Creek
- $251,075 – Brentwood
- $250,000 – Antioch (proposed)
- $239,460 – Oakley
Bernal was hired last March to replace Steve Duran who had been hired in 2013.
