The Prince George’s County Council has received the 2017-2018 Prince George’s County Compensation Review Board report and recommendations, publicly presented during Council session on Tuesday, January 23, 2018.

The seven-member Compensation Review Board, established by CB-70-2017, and authorized in County Charter Sections 308 and 406, is charged with making recommendations regarding a fair and reasonable compensation package for the Prince George’s County Council Members and County Executive elected in the November 2018 General Election.

Council Chair Dannielle Glaros (D) – District 3, noted the conscientious work of the Compensation Review Board, and thanked them for their service. 

“The Compensation Review Board has worked diligently, conducting an extensive review of the salaries, benefits and pensions of Prince George’s County elected officials, and those in our neighboring jurisdictions, and we are thankful for their dedication to this effort.  The Council will be reviewing the recommendations and supporting documentation in the weeks and months ahead.”

Compensation Review Board Member M.H. Jim Estepp noted the significant work of Prince George’s County’s public officials.

“We have some outstanding public servants and elected officials working on behalf of County residents and the public is generally unaware of the effort that is expended on their behalf.  While we cannot provide compensation similar to that of a corporate entity, the Compensation Board’s recommendations are moderate and in line with the work done on behalf of the citizens.”

The Compensation Review Board studied information on salary, benefits and pensions, providing the basis for its recommendations, which included a one-time salary adjustment for Council Members in December 2018, and adjusting salaries for the County Executive and County Council in accordance with the Consumer Price Index.  To view the full Compensation Review Report and recommendations, please click HERE.

Pursuant to Charter Section 308 and Charter Section 406, the Council may, within ninety days of the receipt of the Compensation Review Board’s recommendation, amend the recommendation by a vote of not less than two-thirds of the full Council; otherwise the recommendation shall stand approved.
