Tacoma’s city manager-to-be stands to make a salary of $221,208 per year under a proposed two-year employment contract to be considered by the City Council tonight.
If approved by council, Broadnax would begin work in Tacoma on Feb. 13 and must live within the city.
The contract would pay Broadnax up to $25,000 in moving expenses, and, once he buys a home here, it would pay him an additional $20,000 for a “housing equalization allowance in recognition of the substantial cost of living factors now encountered in the Puget Sound region.”
Broadnax also would be provided an initial bank of 22 days of administrative leave, be paid a $550 per month automobile allowance, receive standard city health care benefits, get a 401(k) match of up to three percent of his salary, and have his general expenses covered related to professional membership dues and work-related training, travel and professional development.
The contract would run through Feb. 12, 2014, at which time the council can decide whether to extend Broadnax’s employment another two years.
