NORTH OGDEN -- Pay is too low for employees in North Ogden, according to the mayor and the council-appointed North Ogden Benefits Committee.The committee suggested the city take a retention strategy with employees, rather than the cost-containment strategy the city has been using the past few years.The city appointed the seven-member committee in mid-2012. The committee was made up of North Ogden residents who work both in the private and public sector. Employees Annette Spendlove, from human resources, and Finance Director Bryan Steele also helped on the committee. Committee Chairman Neal Berube recently addressed the mayor and council and paid high praise to Spendlove and Steele for their work on the committee. "They are evidence of the great employees you have in your city," Berube said.
