The proposed resolution creates several personnel changes within Metro Transit and includes recreating a Graphics Technician from .6 FTE to 1.0 FTE, recreating an Assistant Schedule Planner to a Planner 2, recreating a Utility Worker position as a Building & Grounds Supervisor Transit Maintenance Supervisor, and deleting a part-time Customer Service Representative.
