RESOLVED, that the proposed amendments to the specifications for the civil service classification of heavy equipment operator, which were approved by the civil service board on April 1, 2008, 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 basic unit employees and compensated at Pay Range 27.
STATEMENT OF PURPOSE: Based on the needs of the street and parks maintenance division, the job description was updated to require a Class A commercial driver’s license with tanker endorsement upon hire. With diminishing staff, it is necessary that all employees have this endorsement and are able to operate all equipment immediately. Other small changes were made to clarify requirements. There is no change in the rate of pay, $3,175 to $3,754 per month.
