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 their 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:
