Title
Resolution to Increase Fire Services Authorized Staffing Level (8 Votes Required)
Memorandum
The City recently conducted a hiring process for Fire Services for its six full-time equivalent vacancies (FTEs). Filling the six FTE vacancies brings the authorized staffing level to 85 FTEs, the level that was approved by City Council in Resolution No. R-12-376, Resolution to Accept and Approve the FY2011 Staffing for Adequate Fire and Emergency Response (SAFER) Grant and Authorize Expenditure for Additional Fire FTEs on August 9, 2012. Through the hiring process, seven qualified candidates were identified. Fire Chief Hubbard and Safety Services Area Administrator Seto have recommended that the Fire Department’s authorized staffing level be increased to 86 FTEs. Increasing the full-time staffing level to 86 FTEs is beneficial to the City. An additional position will help Fire Chief Hubbard manage overtime and staff Fire Prevention Services.

The estimated FY2013 expense of one additional FTE position is $50,000.00. Funding for FY2013 is available from the General Fund in anticipated higher than budgeted receipts from the State’s Economic Vitality Incentive Program.

The estimated FY2014 expense of this additional full-time position is $82,000.00. Staff are preparing the FY2014/2015 budget and will incorporate this anticipated expenditure if approved.
