Impact Statement

Purpose of Proposed Legislation and Background Information

The City seeks to create five new classifications to align with the new government structure directed by the recently adopted City Charter. This will position the organization to implement the changes in accordance with the timelines outlined in the Charter.

Financial and Budgetary Impacts

There is no direct cost to create the new classifications.

The City Administrator has a range of $268,632 annual full time to $371,592 annual full time.

The Assistant City Administrator has a range of $139,464 annual full time to $210,787.20 annual full time.

The Deputy City Administrator has a range of $204,880 annual full time to $307,299.20 annual full time.

100% Renewable Goal

This action is largely internal to City government processes.

Budget Office Financial Impact Analysis

The salary classifications represented in this action align with the estimates that the CBO provided for the overall City Charter resolution (see document 37635 from the November 1, 2023 Council Calendar). The net impact of the salaries will depend on how positions are funded. Currently, the mayor’s aide and senior aide positions are covered through existing appropriations. The City Administrator and Assistant City Administrator positions were included in the CAL ordinance adopted by council on November 29th (see document 191526). Based on the current organizational chart for the charter transition, the costs for six deputy city administrator positions will be between $1,229,280 and $1,843,795.
