Fiscal Note

The proposed ordinance amendment has an estimated cost increase of approximately $3,500, which is almost exclusively attributable to the changes in the night and holiday differential. The proposed changes to the designated holidays and death of city employee subdivisions of the handbook have little to no fiscal impact. No additional City appropriation is required for the proposed ordinance amendment.
