Supervisors to review manager's contract

The Board of Supervisors will vote on whether to extend Carson City Manager Larry Werner's contract another two years when it meets Thursday.

The proposed contract doesn't contain a raise. In fact, Werner will get less take-home pay since he will have to pay the increased Public Employee Retirement System premiums - about $60 off each biweekly paycheck.

The proposal before the board would extend his existing contract from Jan. 1, 2013, through Dec. 31, 2015. It isn't agendized as a review of Werner's performance. That occurs each January.

Werner's total salary would be $138,592 for the year. The total value of his salary plus benefits comes to $192,763.

The contract specifies he would only receive cost of living adjustments if other unclassified department heads receive raises during the coming two-year period.

The Carson City Board of Supervisors meets at 8:30 a.m. Thursday in the Sierra Room of the Carson City Community Center, 851 E. William St. Go to to download an agenda and a complete information packet.
