TO: Mayor and Councilors

SUBJECT: Inspections & Codes Department - Reclassifications

INITIATED BY: John Hudgison, Inspections & Codes Director
____________________________________________________________________________

Recommendation: Approve an ordinance reclassifying one position in the Inspections & Codes Department effective December 31, 2016.

Background: The reclassification of the Zoning Technician Position to a GIS Technician is being driven by the Inspections and Codes Department receiving a grant from ESRI and Leica Geosystems that provides the department with new software and hardware. The intent of the joint program is to supply governments with the tools to succeed as they implement progressive methods to streamline workflows. By providing technology, training, and technical support grants, ESRI and Leica Geosystems aim to inspire legislative bodies to devise transformational approaches to improving the efficiency of mobile fieldworkers.

As innovative ideas from the government community are brought forward for solving real-world problems, the best applications will be those of universal appeal and the ability to be shared between governments through an open exchange hub. The challenge's grant winners will be thought-leading governments that have plans in place to jump-start projects such as facility inspections, emergency reporting, asset inventory, environmental management and monitoring, efficient employee routing, code enforcement, population and housing enumeration, mosquito abatement, and/or sign inventory.

Analysis: The reclassification of a Zoning Technician (G10A) to a GIS Technician G14A will be funded by salary savings of a retired employee and the existing salary savings from the unfilled Zoning Technician position.

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

Projected Annual Fiscal Impact Statement: The reclassifications along with the salary savings result in no change to the budget.

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

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