On a roll call vote, Motion Passed. I. SALARY AND PERSONNEL COMMITTEE 1. GovHR Staffing Analysis and S&P Recommendation To Request Proposals For Employee Classification and Compensation Study City Administrator Lothspeich summarizes the Council approval to proceed with the employee classification study, but not the compensation analysis in fall of 2021. Recently the employee classification study was presented to Salary and Personnel, noting no duplication of services but some areas requiring additional support. Administration is seeking approval to proceed with a request for proposal (RFP) for the compensation study with a deadline to submit within 30 days. Administrator Lothspeich summarizes the budgetary impacts and possibility to reduce the previous practice of transferring an average of $600,000 from the General Fund to support capital improvements. This reduction could support the financial needs for the compensation study and wage increases. Police officers wages are determined through negotiation with the WPPA, so this will not directly impact the sworn officers. Alder Hardy inquires if the compensation comparisons could be obtained by ourselves, rather than hiring a company. City Administrator shares the recent efforts to obtain our own results with limited results. Also comments on the reduction in staff over recent years. This is a good practice to reduce operating costs, however the classification study shows there is a need to provide greater staff support for some positions and departments. This will also evaluate job descriptions. The study timeline was summarized. The study would not be complete until early 2023, and can be budgeted for. Administration is hoping for Committee and Council approval to proceed with a study by early October 2022. Council members comment on the needs to support the employees, as it is important for retention, recruitment and maintaining a well run organization. It is recognized the compensation study would include the evaluation and updating of job descriptions, which is also timely and costly for staff to complete. It is clarified tonight's consideration is to seek approval to proceed with the RFP for a compensation study. The proposals will then be presented before Salary and Personnel to review and recommend to Common Council for approval. Discussion that it should be a high priority to proceed sooner than later for employee retention. Recent past practice has followed a piece meal approach, and this study would help identify the overall needs as well as implement a more proactive method. Motion made by Brooke Bauman and seconded by Joshua Binger to to approve to proceed with the RFP for proposals for an employee compensation study. On a roll call vote, Motion Passed. J. COUNCIL OF THE WHOLE 1. Monthly Review of 1. Temporary Amendment to Employee Paid Time Off Policy City Administrator Lothspeich provides a summary of recent review by Salary and Personnel of the current Paid Time Off (PTO) policies, as well as the component of the temporary amendment of the medical leave policy related to COVID. A recent update regarding the temporary amendment was shared with the Council, that a total pay out of $1610 more in extraordinary pay has occurred since inception, rather than paid to employees at time of separation. The current usage and need is not as high as it was earlier in the pandemic. K. BUSINESS PRESENTED BY ALDERPERSONS Alder Schindler inquires on a possible administrative position for economic development that had been budgeted for, but was not filled. Alder Binger and city staff advise it was budgeted for in prior years, but was decisioned by the Common Council not to fill that position after City Administrator Lothspeich was hired. L. BUSINESS PRESENTED BY DEPARTMENT HEADS Clerk Rindy reminds the Council that the next regular scheduled Common Council will occur on Tuesday, September 6, 2022. There is a fifth Monday in August, as well as the first Monday in September is Labor Day. M. BUSINESS PRESENTED BY THE PRESS None. N.
