Title
Resolution authorizing a double-fill of a Transit Operations General Supervisor through July, 2014.
Body
WHEREAS, Metro Transit's leadership team within its Operations Unit consists of an Operations Manager and 3 Transit Operations General Supervisors; and
 
WHEREAS, one Transit Operations General Supervisor is expected to retire in July, 2014, another is expected to retire in January, 2015, and the Operations Manager is also expected to retire in January, 2015; and
 
WHEREAS, this will create significant turnover and disruption in the Operations Unit leadership team; and
 
WHEREAS, Metro Transit would like to minimize this disruption by being able to double-fill a Transit Operations General Supervisor as soon as possible to allow for cross-training while the  incumbents are still in place, causing a double fill in excess of 30 days; and
 
WHEREAS, Metro Transit can fund this double fill through salary savings;
 
NOW, THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED, that the double-filling of the Transit Operations General Supervisor position, #2786, at Metro Transit, is approved through the retirement of the incumbent, or until the next permanent Transit Operations General Supervisor vacancy occurs, whichever comes first.
