STAFF REPORT

Agenda Item:  Resolution Adopting the Water/Wastewater Operator Trainee, Water/Wastewater Operator I, Water/Wastewater Operator H, Water/Wastewater Operator HI and Water/Wastewater Manager Job Descriptions and Corresponding Salary Schedules.

Meeting date:  February 6, 2018

Prepared by:  Anthony Chavarria, Public Works Director

Reviewed by:  Danna Rasmussen, Sr. Administrative Analyst/Confidential Jose Antonio Ramirez, City Manager

RECOMMENDATION:

Staff recommends that the City Council adopt Resolution No. 2018- , adopting the employee classifications titled “Water/Wastewater Operator Trainee, Water/Wastewater Operator I, Water/Wastewater Operator II, Water/Wastewater Operator III and Water/Wastewater Manager” employee classifications and corresponding salary schedules

BACKGROUND:

Currently there are two (2) full time Wastewater Utilities Operators that staff the wastewater treatment facility and three (3) full time Utilities Operators that staff the water treatment facilities. The current job descriptions are for Utility Operators and for Wastewater Utilities Operators.

There is no commingling of the two facilities due to the required certifications. Language from a revised water permit amendment issued by the State Water Resources Control Board expresses that the Water Board is concerned with current staffing levels within the City’s water department.

City staff has collected and evaluated salary schedules from nearby cities that are either comparable to the City of Livingston’s population or cities that have a dual certified salary schedule such as the City of Parlier, City of Kerman, City of Firebaugh, City of Atwater and the City of Livingston’s current Utilities Wastewater Operator pay scale.

DISCUSSION

Staff is requesting that the City Council approve the new classification, job description and salary schedule. The new classification will be required to hold dual certifications in Water Treatment and Wastewater Treatment enabling the City to utilize the new classification to assist both facilities with operations and preventative maintenance.

The current separation of the Water and Wastewater department will be eliminated turning it into a single department. This will allow the department to implement a proactive strategy to better assist our customers and prolong life expectancy of equipment and infrastructure.

FISCAL IMPACT

Anticipated operating costs have been included in the Fiscal Year 2017-2018 budget.
