The City of Punta Gorda strives to offer its employees competitive salaries and benefits by striking a balance between what other employers in the area, both public agencies and private enterprises, offer their employees; and the financial resources that are available.  Each year the City's pay and benefits package is evaluated and adjustments are made within the constraints defined by these two employment realities, and to ensure that this package is balanced in such a way as to offer City employees a stable support structure. 

The City's pay and classification system is defined by its Pay Plan.  In addition to competitive salaries, the City offers its employees a generous benefits package.
