City Manager David Corliss received high marks during his annual performance evaluation Monday.
Following a nearly two-hour executive session, city commissioners said Corliss had provided good leadership to the city during tight budget times.
Commissioners offered Corliss a 2 percent increase in his salary, but Corliss declined the increase. Instead, he asked that the issue be revisited in July, when the city’s budget picture will be clearer. Corliss also declined to accept a raise last year. His salary will remain at $130,000 per year.
Corliss did receive an adjustment in his contract that allows him to keep up to 600 hours of vacation time. His current contract prohibits him from having more than 420 hours of vacation available at any one time.
Mayor Mike Dever said the commission was united in its support of Corliss, who was appointed city manager in September 2006.
“He graded out well with all the commissioners,” Dever said.
Dever did not publicly identify any areas that the commission asked Corliss to improve upon.
