RESOLUTION APPROVING PROPOSED AMENDMENTS TO THE SPECIFICATIONS FOR THE CIVIL SERVICE CLASSIFICATION OF UTILITY OPERATIONS SUPERVISOR.

BY COUNCILOR STEWART:

        RESOLVED, that the proposed amendments to the specifications for the civil service classification of utility operations supervisor, which were approved by the civil service board on June 5, 2001, and which are filed with the city clerk as Public Document No. ____________, are approved. This classification shall remain subject to the city's collective bargaining agreement with its supervisory unit employees and compensated at Pay Range 1080-1095, $3,899 to $5,106 per month.



STATEMENT OF PURPOSE: Because of the recent merger of the old water and gas and public works departments, some otherwise qualified individuals may not have had an opportunity to acquire the necessary Minnesota wastewater license. In order to provide a fair opportunity for those applicants, the city agrees to extend this requirement to four years from the date of appointment for all otherwise qualified applicants applying before June 1, 2002. Failure to acquire and maintain the necessary licensure within this four-year period is understood to be grounds for dismissal.
