SUBJECT: Inspections & Codes Department - Reclassifications

INITIATED BY: John Hudgison, Inspections & Codes Director
__________________________________________________________________________________________________

Recommendation: Approve an ordinance reclassifying two positions in the Inspections & Codes Department effective October 31, 2016.

Background: The Internal Audit Department performed a transition audit of the Inspections & Codes Department and presented their findings and recommendations to City Council on August 9, 2016. A revised organization chart was provided to the auditors and the recommendations was made to reclassify two positions within the department. The new director of the Inspections & Codes Department concurs with the recommendation.

Analysis: The reclassification of a Permit Technician (G10A) to a Communications Officer (G10A) is a title change only. The reclassification of an Administrative Assistant (G12M) to Office Manager (G14A) provides for a budgetary savings.

Financial Considerations: There is no financial impact from the reclassifications.

Projected Annual Fiscal Impact Statement: The reclassifications result in a budgetary savings.

Legal Considerations: An ordinance is required to reclassify a position.

Recommendations/Actions: Approve an ordinance reclassifying two positions in the Inspections & Codes Department effective October 31, 2016.
