C-Tran chief gets pay raise

The Columbian

C-Tran Executive Director Jeff Hamm will make nearly $4,300 more in the coming year, after the agency’s board approved a pay raise Tuesday night.

Following an executive session, the board unanimously voted to give Hamm a 2 percent cost of living increase and a 1.5 percent merit increase, according to C-Tran public affairs director Scott Patterson. That puts Hamm’s 2013 base salary at $126,308.16, up from $122,036.87 in 2012. Hamm’s car allowance will also increase from $300 per month to $400 per month, Patterson said.

Though he has received positive evaluations from the board, Hamm’s pay had not increased since 2008.

Hamm was hired as C-Tran’s executive director in 2006.
