Two years after Kansas City’s “acting city manager” was elevated to permanent status, Troy Schulte got a raise Thursday under a contract extension approved by the City Council.
Schulte’s new base salary is $205,000, up from the $187,200 he was awarded in 2011, after serving 18 months in an interim role.
His contract runs through Dec. 1, 2015, and sets performance goals that include improving efforts within and outside City Hall.
In announcing the new agreement, Councilwoman and Mayor Pro Tem Cindy Circo praised Schulte’s data-driven management of city operations.
The former budget officer has worked for the city since 1998. Unlike his previous contract, this one presents the possibility of annual performance bonuses up to 10 percent. That’s on top of cost of living raises pegged to the amount given other city employees.
Schulte will continue to have use of a city vehicle for business and personal use.
