Washington City & County Employee Salary & Benefits Survey

Contact: Marnie McGrath

Each year, the Association of Washington Cities conducts a comprehensive survey of salaries and benefits provided to employees in Washington’s cities and counties. The survey is an important service of AWC, providing city and county officials with comparable data to assist them in determining equitable wages and benefits for their staff. Data collection takes place in the spring, with final results available to members in mid-summer. Survey data for 2018 and prior years is now available.
