BY COUNCILOR JOHNSON:
RESOLVED, that the proposed amendments to the specifications for the civil service classification of fire equipment operator, which were approved by the civil service board on November 1, 2005, 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 fire unit employees and compensated at Pay Range 227, $4,148 per month.
STATEMENT OF PURPOSE: The only revision was the addition of a job requirement. This requirement is listed on page 2, under the heading “Other Requirements” and is designated by number and letter “6E.” This change is consistent with the same job requirement listed in the specifications for the classification of firefighter and assistant fire chief. The requirement states: Must, within six months of appointment, reside within 25 miles of Headquarters Fire Hall or at a location from which they can respond by vehicle to Headquarters Fire Hall within 30 minutes of being notified, given normal driving conditions. There is no change in the rate of pay.
