The OML Research Department conducts several surveys and provides analytical reports that are conducive to the current issues that Oklahoma cities and towns face each year. OML strives to be a resource to cities and towns that will enable municipalities to have viable statistical information that will enable them to make decisions for the betterment of their communities.
OML annually publishes a salary survey which reports the current wages, fringe benefits and pay plans for cities and towns across the entire state. Basic wage and benefit information is reported in tabular form. Expanded coverage for cities with employee unions provides more detailed information that is useful in the design of pay/benefit plans and in negotiations with labor organizations. It is used by cities and towns across Oklahoma to evaluate their salaries and benefits. The survey will also be provided in an updated electronic format on CD.
