Body

WHEREAS, position #4466 in the Clerk’s Office is budgeted at 0.5 FTE; and

 

WHEREAS, this position has been vacant for a number of years in order to meet salary savings; and

 

WHEREAS, work in the Clerk’s Office has increased in recent years due to changes in voter ID and early voting/off-site absentee voting hours; and

 

WHEREAS, this position could assist with scheduling of hourly and volunteer staff who assist the public in navigating these changes; and

 

WHEREAS, because of changes due to Act 10, a position at 0.5 FTE is not eligible to participate in the Wisconsin Retirement System or the Health Insurance program, and

 

WHEREAS, upon considering this position through an equity lens, being able to offer these important benefits is a key part of recruiting to fill the position,

 

NOW, THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED, that the vacant 0.5 FTE position, #4466, of Certified Municipal Clerk in the Clerk’s Office budget is deleted and recreated as a 0.60 FTE position, thereof.
