SUMMARY:

 

In 2014, a Charter amendment was passed which authorized the City Council to establish the Office of the City Council, with the authority to hire certain staff:

 

                     “The City Council shall establish an Office of the City Council and shall have as its staff

                     the following who shall be responsible to the City Council through the President of the

                     Council.” 4.02(6) City Charter

 

                     “…The City Council, by ordinance, shall define the qualifications, pay and responsibilities

                     of said employee in accordance with the City’s position classification code.” 4.02(6) City

                     Charter - Budget Analyst

 

In 2015, City Council began the staffing process with the addition of a Council Executive and in early 2016 added an Executive Assistant to the City Council as well as a Council Assistant.  In a continuation of the staffing efforts, and in keeping with the language set forth in the City Charter as approved by the electorate in a special referendum, the position to be filled is that of Budget Analyst.

 

Currently, the position of Budget Analyst is classified at a GE-09 with a salary range of $26,270 - $43,868.

 

Attached is a proposal for qualifications, salary, and responsibilities.
