[ARCHIVED] COMPENSATION REVIEW BOARD PRESENTS FINAL REPORT AND RECOMMENDATIONS TO COUNTY COUNCIL

The Prince George’s County Council has received the 2021-2022 Prince George’s County Compensation Review Board Report and Recommendations, presented during Council session on Tuesday, January 18, 2022.  

Appointment of the seven-member Compensation Review Board was authorized in County Charter Sections 308 and 406.  The Compensation Review Board is charged with making recommendations regarding a fair and reasonable compensation package for the County Council Members and County Executive elected in the November 2022 General Election. The 2021-2022 Compensation Review Board Report and Recommendations were submitted to the County Council on December 15, 2021. 

Council Chair Calvin S. Hawkins, II, thanked the Compensation Review Board for its service. 

“The Compensation Review Board has conducted an extensive review of the salaries, benefits and pensions of Prince George’s County elected officials, and provided comparisons with local elected officials in our neighboring jurisdictions. The Council appreciates the service and commitment of Compensation Review Board members, and we look forward to reviewing the report, recommendations and supporting documentation in the weeks and months ahead.” 

Compensation Review Board Chair Lupi Grady acknowledged the significant work of the board to present a fair and reasonable compensation package for the County Council and the County Executive, while considering the fiscal health of the County and the impacts of COVID-19.

The Compensation Review Board studied information on salary, benefits, and pensions, providing the basis for its recommendations, which includes a one-year freeze on increases in year one (2022) of the term. Under the recommendations, compensation for the County Council and County Executive will also adjust each year from 2023 – 2025 by the 12-month increase in the Consumer Price Index for all Urban Consumers (CPI-U) - up to a maximum annual increase of 3%.  To view the full Compensation Review Report and recommendations, please click HERE.
