Each year, the Colorado Municipal League asks our members and other government entities to complete a survey of employee salary, wages, and benefit data.

The compensation report is available only to our member municipalities (if logged in as a clerk, deputy manager, finance director, human resources director, or manager of a member municipality.)

Other municipal officials are asked to work with these colleagues if they need compensation information. Non-governmental associate members and nonmembers do not have access to the data.

CML associate members that are local governments (such as counties and special districts) may subscribe to the Compensation Survey System for an annual fee of $250, in addition to their associate membership fee. The subscription includes a copy of the reports when published in June (click here for an order form).

Unauthorized use of the information contained in the compensation survey reports is strictly prohibited, and unauthorized use may result in legal action against you and your organization. Unauthorized use includes, but is not limited to: sharing information from the reports with any person outside of your organization; sharing information from the reports with an organization or person who is not an authorized CSS client (e.g., a CML member municipality); and selling the information.
