Livable Wage Ordinance

In November of 2001, the City Council enacted an ordinance whose intention it was to provide a minimum level of compensation for city employees and employees of entities that enter into service contracts or receive financial assistance from the City of Burlington.

Annually in May the livable wage is re-calculated. The re-calculated rates then becomes effective on July 1 of that same year.
