Fiscal Note
The fiscal effect of this proposed ordinance is indeterminate. Allowing employees in compensation groups 18 (professional and supervisory) and 44 (transit professional and supevisory) to reside outside of Dane County may broaden the pool of candidates associated with filling positions in these compensation groups. Furthermore, allowing these employees to live outside Dane County may result in additional compensation costs associated with travel time under certain conditions (e.g., inability to come into work due to weather conditions). The ordinance change and the potential fiscal effects are the result of prohibitions on local government employee residency requirements that were adopted as part of 2013 Wisconsin Act 20.

Amending Sections 3.30(2), repealing Sections 3.38(1)(m) and 3.53(10)(a), creating Section 3.53(24)(h), and renumbering Sections 3.53(24)(h) through (l) to Sections 3.53(24)(i) through (m) of the Madison General Ordinances to delete residency requirements pursuant to change in state law.
Body
DRAFTER'S ANALYSIS: This is a companion ordinance to the Charter Ordinance on residency, Legistar 32169. It should not be considered unless the Charter Ordinance is approved. This ordinance makes the non-charter provisions of the ordinances consistent with the Charter Ordinance on residency. It removes ­remaining existing residency rules for all but a few employees, pursuant to recent changes in state law. The companion Charter Ordinance retains residency for Compensation Group 21 and mayoral assistants. Sec. 3.38(1)(m)4. and the third paragraph of Sec. 3.53(10)(a) have been combined and recreated for inclusion in the layoff section for clarity and continuity.
