The City of Albany is committed to maintaining salary levels that are internally equitable, externally competitive, and in compliance with all applicable laws and regulations.

The City of Albany administers a classification and pay system whereby each employee is placed in the job classification which accurately reflects his/her responsibilities and is paid within the established pay range for his/her job.  The pay range assigned to each job classification is based on the internal job evaluation system and analysis of market salary data. Individual pay rates are determined by factors such as qualifications, length of service and job performance.

All employees are compensated fairly regardless of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, disability, veteran status or marital status.


The Office of Human Resources will take a leadership role and provide service by promoting the concept that employees are the City’s most valuable resource and will be treated as such.

The Office of Human Resources will act as catalysts enabling all City of Albany employees to contribute at optimum levels towards the success of City operations. In addition to a competitive salary, the City offers a generous benefits package that includes the following:

  1. Health Plan

    The City’s Public Employees Group Health Plan consists of healthcare and dental benefits. Vision, short and long term disability, accidental death and dismemberment, flexible spending accounts and employee life and dependent life insurances are also available. Full-time employees are eligible for insurance on the first day of the month following 30 days of employment.

  2. Retirement Plan

    An employee must be employed with the City of Albany for ten (10) years before they become vested.

  3. Deferred Compensation

    Employees participate in the GEBCorp (an ACCG Company) Pension. Employees make a pre-tax contribution and the City matches the employee contributions. Tax shelter plans are available that enable employees to provide for greater retirement security. Fund programs are available in both a 457 plan and an IRA Roth account.

  4. Credit Union

    Employees are eligible to become members of the Artesian City Federal Credit Union.

  5. COBRA Benefits Continuation
    The federal Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act (COBRA) helps employees and their dependents to continue their health insurance if they are no longer eligible under our medical and dental insurance plans.


The employees of the City of Albany are our most valuable asset.  Without your dedication and hard work, the City would not be able to continue to thrive and serve our residents.  We spend many hours of the day together.  That’s why I want to make sure that our benefit programs help you maintain and improve your health. Good health is a resource that helps us all meet our goals.

The everyday choices we make can help us live healthier and happier lives, both at work and at home that is why the City of Albany strives to offer wellness programs and benefits that will support all of us in increasing our knowledge about health matters, exploring fun ways to eat healthier, improving our level of physical fitness and enjoying our lives to the fullest.  The City has a great foundation for our wellness program with the onsite health clinic.
