RECOMMENDATION:

Staff recommends that the City Council approve Resolution No. 8090 Establishing a Salary Schedule and Compensation Plan for City Employees and Rescinding Resolution No. 8034.

Further, in light of the increased general fund support as approved by the Library Board of Trustees at its meeting of June 9, 2020, staff recommends that the City Council authorize an additional appropriation in the amount of $319,000 to provide budget authority to restore various positions in the Library that were not approved in the Fiscal Year 2020/2021 Budget adopted on June 2, 2020.
DISCUSSION:

Fiscal Impact
Discussion:
The changes to the salary resolution have been incorporated into the approved 2020/2021 fiscal year budget.

An additional appropriation in the amount of $319,000 is required to provide budget authority to restore various positions to the library. It is staff's understanding that this additional appropriation will be offset by an amount equal to $319,000 in increased general fund support provided by the Library Board of Trustees.  The increased funding will be received as revenue later in the fiscal year to offset this expenditure.
