OAKLEY -- City employees here all will be getting raises along with a one-time bonus to offset inflation.

Oakley council members on Monday agreed to give city workers an across-the-board 2 percent raise in 2014-15 as well as $500 to help them with increases in the cost of living.

However, the city can't afford to fully compensate them for the rise in food, housing and other costs over the past year, which the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics has pegged at 2.8 percent in the Bay Area.

The raises and bonuses for the city's 35 full- and part-time year-round employees amount to about $72,000. Seasonal workers will not receive the increase.

The council's action also included approving seven new job classifications and their salary ranges.

Two of those revised job titles represent new hires -- the city recently brought on an economic development manager and code enforcement coordinator. The rest describe additional or different duties that existing employees have assumed.

Nancy Marquez, assistant to the city manager, took on the secondary role of human resources manager in February; a senior planner now also serves as the city's housing and economic development analyst.

Other employees who had been part time are now working full time and wearing two hats.
