The Board will hear a request from the County Administrator to accept the 2016-17 Living Wage Ordinance Annual Report and approve recommendations regarding an estimated 2.5-3.0 percent cost-of-living (COLA) adjustment for 2018. While the Living Wage Ordinance requires an automatic COLA increase based upon the October-to-October increase in the Bay Area Consumer Price Index (CPI), it also requires a recommendation from the County Administrator incorporating financial conditions. The LWO wage in Marin is $13.80 per hour without benefits and $12.10 per hour including benefits. If the Board takes no action to forgo a COLA, rates will be automatically increased to an estimated $14.20 per hour not including benefits or $12.45 per hour including benefits, assuming a 3.0 percent CPI increase.
The Board accepted the report and approved the recommendations.
