Fiscal Note

The proposed resolution changes the authorized strength of three existing Metro Transit Customer Service positions (#2680, #3374, #3831) from 0.5 FTE to 0.6 FTE.  The total annual cost of the proposed change is projected to be $28,500, or $9,500 per position annually. The increased costs to the City are attributed to the positions eligibility for health insurance and WRS enrollment when changed to 0.6 FTE.

 

Title

Body

WHEREAS, positions #2680, #3374, #3831 in Metro Transit are budgeted at 0.5 FTE; and

 

WHEREAS, these positions have consistently been scheduled in excess of 20 hours per week; and

NOW, THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED, that the vacant 0.5 FTE positions, #2680 and #3374; and the encumbered position #3831 of Transit Customer Service Representative in Metro Transit’s budget are deleted and recreated as a 0.60 FTE position, thereof.

 

BE IT FUTHER RESOLVED, that the incumbent in position #3831, Ms. Mary Rieland, be reallocated to the 0.6 FTE position.
