City Counselor Ops.: 9811

4.26.021 Starting salary.

The minimum rate of pay for a position shall be paid upon original appointment to the class, unless the appointing authority finds that it is impractical to recruit employees with adequate qualifications at the minimum rate.

If an advanced starting salary is necessary, the City Treasurer (hereinafter referred to as the "appointing authority") may establish a recruitment rate for a single position or all positions in a class and authorized employment at a figure above the minimum but within the regular range of salary established for the class.
(Ord. No. 68121, 4, 10-10-2008: prior: Ord. 67805 4, 2007: Ord. 67330 4, 2006: Ord. 66279 4, 2004: Ord. 64950 4, 2000: Ord. 64378 4, 1998: Ord. 63816 4, 1996: Ord. 63182 4, 1994: Ord. 62662 5, 1992: Ord. 62332 5, 1991: Ord. 62102 5, 1990: Ord. 62006 5, 1990: Ord. 61285 5, 1989: Ord. 59939 7, 1986: Ord. 59154 5, 1984: Ord. 58689 5, 1982.)

4.26.022 Promotion, demotion, reallocation and transfer.

An employee who is transferred, promoted, demoted, or whose position is reallocated after the effective date of the ordinance codified in this chapter, shall have his or her rate of pay for the new position determined as follows:

A. Promotion. This shall be defined as a change of an employee from a position of one class to a position of another class with a higher pay grade.

1. When an employee is promoted to a position in the General and Management Schedule which is only one grade higher, the employee's salary shall be set at a rate which is five percent (5%) higher than the rate received immediately prior to promotion. An appointing authority may approve up to a twenty percent (20%) salary adjustment when such action is needed to attract experienced, qualified candidates for a position. Such salary determination shall take into consideration the nature and magnitude of the accretion of duties and responsibilities resulting from the promotion. However, no employee shall be paid less than the minimum rate nor more than the maximum rate for the new class of position.

B. Demotion. This shall be defined as a change of an employee from a position of one class to a position of another class which has a lower pay grade.

1. If an employee is demoted for disciplinary reasons his or her rate of pay shall be established at a rate within the range for the new position to be determined by the appointing authority.

2. If an employee accepts a voluntary demotion, his or her rate of pay shall be reduced to a rate within the range for the new position which is five percent (5%) lower than the rate received immediately prior to demotion. However, no employee shall be paid less than the minimum nor more than the maximum rate for the new class of position.

C. Reallocation.

1. The salary of an employee which is in excess of the maximum of the range prescribed by this chapter for the class and grade to which his or her position has been allocated or may be reallocated shall not be reduced by reason of the new salary range and grade. The salary of such employee shall not be increased so long as he or she remains in the class of position, except as otherwise provided by this chapter.

2. If the employee's position is reallocated to a class in a lower pay grade and the rate of pay for the previous position is within the salary range of the new position, his or her salary shall remain unchanged.

3. The salary of an employee whose position is allocated to a class in a higher pay grade shall be determined in accordance with the provisions of subsection (A)(1) of this section relating to salary advancement on promotion.

D. Transfer. The salary rate of an employee who transfers to a different position in the same class, or from a position in one class to a position in another class in the same pay grade, shall remain unchanged, provided that no employee shall be paid less than the minimum rate nor more than the maximum rate for the new class of position, except as otherwise provided in this chapter.
(Ord. No. 68121, 5, 10-10-2008: prior: Ord. 67805 5, 2007: Ord. 67330 5, 2006: Ord. 66279 5, 2004: Ord. 64950 5, 2000: Ord. 64378 5, 1998: Ord. 63816 5, 1996: Ord. 63182 5, 1994: Ord. 62662 6, 1992: Ord. 62332 6, 1991: Ord. 62102 6, 1990: Ord. 62006 6, 1990: Ord. 61285 6, 1989: Ord. 59939 8, 1986: Ord. 59154 6, 1984: Ord. 58689 6, 1982.)

4.26.023 Salary adjustment.

Salary adjustments for all employees shall be based on considerations of merit, equity, or success in fulfilling predetermined goals and objectives as herein provided:

A. A decrease in the salary range for poor performance of the duties of the position or for job performance which does not warrant continued pay at an advanced rate in the salary range shall be made in accordance with standards established by the appointing authority.

B. The appointing authority may adjust the salary of an employee whose salary is established in this chapter only at intervals as described above except in the case of:

1. Exceptional Performance of Duties. The appointing authority of an employee who demonstrates exceptional performance of duties or outstanding qualifications may, advance the employee by not more than ten percent (10%) after twenty-six weeks of employment at the same rate in the salary range.

2. Substandard Performance of Duties. The appointing authority of an employee whose level of performance is significantly diminished and no longer warrants payment at the current rate within the range may be decreased to a lower rate in the salary range.

C. The pay of any employee may be decreased as a disciplinary action by an appointing authority to a lower rate or step within a salary range. The decrease shall not be greater than fifteen percent (15%) of the current salary rate. In no case shall the decrease be below the minimum of the pay range for the class. The appointing authority may determine that the pay decrease shall be effective for a specific number of bi-weekly pay periods, providing, however, that such decrease shall not be effective for more than twenty-six (26) weeks.

D. For the purpose of computing earnings and length of service for salary advancement, the time shall start with the Sunday preceding all appointments effective on Monday. Absence from service in the armed forces, and leaves of absence for study to improve performance of City job will not interrupt continuous service. Absence from service for any other cause except as set forth above will result in breaking continuity of service.
(Ord. No. 68121, 6, 10-10-2008: prior: Ord. 67805 6, 2007: Ord. 67330 6, 2006: Ord. 66279 6, 2004: Ord. 64950 6, 2000: Ord. 64378 6, 1998: Ord. 63816 6, 1996: Ord. 63182 6, 1994: Ord. 62662 7, 1992: Ord. 62332 7, 1991: Ord. 62102 7, 1990: Ord. 62006 7, 1990: Ord. 61285 7, 1989: Ord. 59939 9, 1986: Ord. 59154 6, 1984: Ord. 58689 7, 1982.)

(Ord. 52741 3, 1964: 1960 C. 49.030.)

4.26.040 Income sources.

Any salary paid to an employee in the City service shall represent the total remuneration for the employee, excepting reimbursements for official travel and other payments specifically authorized by ordinance. No employee shall receive remuneration from the City in addition to the salary authorized in this chapter for services rendered by the employee in the discharge of the employee's ordinary duties, of additional duties which may be imposed upon the employee, or of duties which the employee may undertake or volunteer to perform.

Whenever an employee not on an approved, paid leave works for a period less than the regularly established number of hours a day, days a week or days bi-weekly, the amount paid shall be proportionate to the hours in the employee's normal work week and the bi-weekly rate for the employee's position. The payment of a separate salary for actual hours worked from two or more departments, divisions or other units of the City for duties performed for each of such agencies is permissible if the total salary received from these agencies is not in excess of the maximum rate of pay for the class.
(Ord. No. 68121, 7, 10-10-2008: prior: Ord. 67805 7, 2007: Ord. 67330 7, 2006: Ord. 66279 7, 2004: Ord. 64950 7, 2000: Ord. 64378 7, 1998: Ord. 63816 7, 1996: Ord. 63182 7, 1994: Ord. 62662 8, 1992: Ord. 62332 8, 1991: Ord. 62102 8, 1990: Ord. 62006 8, 1990: Ord. 61285 8, 1989.)

4.26.050 Conversion.

A. All pay schedules in Ordinance 67805 shall continue in effect until the beginning of the bi-weekly pay period starting concurrently with or after the effective date of the ordinance codified in this chapter at which time the rates to be paid to employees in positions of any class for which a rate is established or changed in Section 4.26.020(A) shall become effective and be adjusted as follows:

1. The salary of each employee whose pay range is established in Section 4.26.020(A) and whose class title remains unchanged or whose class title is changed to better describe his/her position, without a substantial revision in the class of position shall have their current salary increased by three and one-half percent (3.5%) as a cost of living adjustment, rounded to the nearest whole dollar or the minimum of the salary range, whichever is greater. This provision shall not apply to employees whose rate is deemed to be above the maximum of the new range as a result of demotion or reallocation. No employee shall be compensated at a rate above the maximum of the new salary range except as provided in below.

B. No employee shall be reduced in salary by reason of the adoption of the new pay schedules in this chapter.

C. The appointing authority may establish a special conversion procedure for a class or position in the event that the appointing authority determines that a serious inequity would be created by the application of the conversion procedures established in this section.
(Ord. No. 68121, 8, 10-10-2008: prior: Ord. 67805 8, 2007: Ord. 67330 8, 2006: Ord. 66279 8, 2004: Ord. 65519 8, 2002: Ord. 64950 8, 2000: Ord. 64378 8, 1998: Ord. 63816 8, 1996: Ord. 63182 8, 1994: Ord. 62662 9, 1992: Ord. 62332 9, 1991: Ord. 62102 9, 1990: Ord. 62006 9, 1990: Ord. 61285 9, 1989.)

4.26.060 Changes to pay plan.

Whenever the appointing authority finds it necessary to add a new class or reallocate the grade of a class of position in the classification plan, the appointing authority shall allocate or reallocate the class to an appropriate grade in this chapter, and notify the Board of Aldermen of this action.
(Ord. No. 68121, 10, 10-10-2008: prior: Ord. 67805 9, 2007: Ord. 67330 10, 2006: Ord. 66279 9, 2004: Ord. 64950 9, 2000: Ord. 64378 9, 1998: Ord. 63816 9, 1996: Ord. 63182 9, 1994.)

4.26.070 Personal days.

Full-time classified employees paid a bi-weekly rate who are regularly scheduled to work an average of eighty (80) hours bi-weekly and who are employed on the effective date of the ordinance codified in this chapter shall have eight (8) hours of compensatory time added to their balance on that date. The additional compensatory time added to the balance of each employee shall be treated as "Personal Leave" and shall be granted by the appointing authority in accordance with procedures for granting compensatory time. These hours of compensatory time must be taken between October 10, 2008 and June 20, 2009.
(Ord. No. 68121, 9, 10-10-2008: prior: Ord. 67330 9, 2006.)
