Nick Petrino, one of our code enforcement officers who will have been with the city 10 years in October, was on the "hot seat." He will be keeping his job after all. The decision was made at 9:20 this morning. The City must have realized that the charges were not strong enough and/or unproven. We need Nick and more employees like him: hard-working and dedicated to doing the best job each and every day.
Immediately following the above, the Union Negotiating Committee met and discussed raises only for 2016/2017. The Pension discussions were put on the back burner in order for the city to concentrate 1) on the budget and 2) merit raises. Merit raises will be discussed in the month of March 2017. The Union Reps and the City agreed to a two year 4% raise for those in the PMU and PMSA.
The Employee Liability is $38,601,258.00 or 333.06% percentage of covered employee payroll.
