Minimum Wage in Sunnyvale

Sunnyvale’s current minimum wage is $10.30 per hour.
The Sunnyvale City Council directed staff to introduce an ordinance which would increase the minimum wage to $11.00 per hours on July 1, 2016, $13.00 on January 1, 2017 and $15.00 on January 1, 2018. If the ordinance is adopted, beginning January 1, 2019, and then on every January 1 thereafter, the City minimum wage would increase to adjust for inflation. The increase would correspond to the prior year's Consumer Price Index based on the San Francisco-Oakland-San Jose regional index as reported by the U.S. Department of Labor's Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Sunnyvale employers and employers doing business in Sunnyvale are subject to the Minimum Wage Ordinance. Employer and employee forms are available online at MinimumWage.inSunnyvale.com.

If you have any questions, email or call (408) 730-7902.

Increased Sewer and Water Connection Fees

The City of Sunnyvale collects water and sewer connection (capacity) fees to recover the cost of capacity in infrastructure and assets which benefit new development.  Recently, a fee study was conducted which determined that the fees need to be increased to accurately recover the cost of the additional capacity. Staff will be conducting outreach meetings to explain the findings in the study and review the increases to the fees.

The meetings will be held in the West Conference Room at City Hall (456 West Olive Avenue) on January 27 at 11:00am (for residential developers) and February 2 at 11:00am (for commercial property developers). 

For more information, please contact Stephen Napier at (408) 730-7385 or by email.
