Item 66:City Manager appointment, compensation, & benefits

Post by Steve Adler » Tue Jan 30, 2018 4:15 pm


This post is to share with the community my recommendation, following discussions with our staff and the city attorney, of an offer to be extended to our selected City Manager candidate, Spencer Cronk. This recommendation for Mr. Cronk’s compensation and benefits include the following:

• Base salary: Annual salary of $325,000
• Executive allowance $7,200 annually
• Housing Allowance $4,500 per month for six months to offset costs of a temporary residence

The Austin City Council will consider appointing Mr. Cronk as the City of Austin’s new City Manager and finalizing compensation and benefits at the Council Meeting, Thursday February 1, 2018. The draft resolution for council consideration can be found here:
