CITY COUNCIL AGENDA ITEM NO.
Meeting Date: April 23, 2002
Subject/Title: Establishment of Employee Tuition Reimbursement Program
Submitted by: J. Stevenson/P. Standley
Approved by: John Stevenson, City Manager
Approve a Resolution adopting a City Employee Tuition Reimbursement Policy and Procedure.
Previously, the City has budgeted department by department for tuition reimbursement, with the result being no uniformity between departments. This policy sets a reasonable maximum reimbursement per year, a maximum number of employees eligible and sets reasonable parameters that guarantee benefits to the City. This program would benefit the City by providing educational opportunities to our employees.
Staff has met and conferred in good faith with employee bargaining unit representatives with regard to policy development.
The probable cost will be $40,000 to $50,000 in fiscal year 2002/2003.
