Subject/Title: Approve Salary Range and Classification Description for Facility 
Maintenance Worker

Submitted by: Patti Standley, Human Resources Manager

Approved by: Jon Elam, City Manager

Adopt a Resolution approving the Facility Maintenance Worker classification and salary range. 

City Council approved funds for this classification through the 2000/01 Mid-year Budget Review.

In 1999 the City employed a temporary, hourly employee to perform facility maintenance duties as described in the attached classification description. Originally, these duties required 20 hours per week but as the City has grown, additional staff requires maintenance services and additional City facilities require additional time to maintenance. The hours necessary to accomplish the work that needs to be done have increased to 40 hours per week. 

Staff recommends establishing the Facility Maintenance Worker classification as a regular City classification as the duties performed have required an increase in work hours from part-time to full-time hours. 

Staff recommends a salary range of $38,148-$46,368 annually. The proposed salary is based on internal equity with established City classifications, as staff was unable to locate another agency with a comparable classification. 

The Personnel Sub-committee has reviewed the above recommendation and presents the classification and salary range to the City Council for review and approval.



WHEREAS, the City Council Personnel Subcommittee has reviewed staffís recommendation to establish the regular classification of Facility Maintenance Worker, and,

WHEREAS, the City has grown, adding additional staff to serve and additional City facilities to maintain, and,

WHEREAS, duties and work hours increased from 20 hours per week to 40 hours per week effective January 2001, and,

WHEREAS, staff recommends establishing a salary range of $38,148 - $46,368 annually based on internal equity of this classification and existing Brentwood classifications, and,

WHEREAS, funds are available to provide for salary and benefits in the 2000/01 City of Brentwood budget.

NOW, THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED the City Council of the City of Brentwood adopts the classification description for Facility Maintenance Worker and the salary range as proposed above.

PASSED, APPROVED AND ADOPTED by the City Council of the City of Brentwood at a regular meeting held on May 8, 2001 by the following vote:
