Fiscal Note

The proposed ordinance establishes rules for the approval of furlough programs, which will now require Common Council approval in order to implement mandatory furloughs for City employees. Currently, administration of furloughs is overseen by the Mayor’s Office through establishing APMs. The ordinance does not establish or alter any specific furlough program and therefore does not have a fiscal impact.

Title

Amending Sec. 3.53(3)(b) and creating Section 3.53(10) of the Madison General Ordinances.

Body

DRAFTER’S ANALYSIS:  This ordinance authorizes the Personnel Board to formulate rules and regulations related to furloughs, subject to Common Council approval.  The ordinance also authorizes the Common Council to impose mandatory furlough time for city officials and employees.
