Impact Statement

Purpose of Proposed Legislation and Background Information

The City seeks to create broad classifications to capture the work of management positions directed to work on high-priority issues identified by the Mayor/Council. This will efficiently integrate the positions into the City’s existing systems, processes, and policies. Pay ranges for the classifications are broad but pay ranges for the body of work to be performed will be determined based on market conditions and alignment with the existing compensation structure.

Financial and Budgetary Impacts

There is no direct cost to create the new classifications.

The Emergency Operations Director has a range of $48.88 per hour / $101,670.40 annual full time to $125.35 per hour / $260,728 annual full time.

The Incident Command Manager has a range of $42.74 per hour / $88,899.20 annual full time to $111.25 per hour / $231,400 annual full time.
