A Resolution to Authorize the Elimination of a  a 1.00 FTE Full-Time Permanent Recycling Coordinator, and the Creation Of  Two Full Time Permanent Solid Waste Management Operator Positions In The Landfill Enterprise Fund

Topic Description:

This item would reallocate personnel for the Department of Environmental Services in the Landfill Enterprise Fund to address ongoing workload requirements for the County’s solid waste management system.  An existing vacant 1.00 FTE recycling/education manager position would be eliminated and existing temporary funding would be reassigned to provide the necessary funding for two full time permanent solid waste management operator positions.  This initiative would allow the department to address service deficits and staffing needs in landfill operations and management of the County’s recycling program. 

The recycling/education manager position is budgeted at $73,085 in FY 2010.  Establishing two additional full time permanent solid waste management operator positions will incur approximately $90,067 in expenditures on an annual basis.  The remaining $16,982 would be addressed by reassigning a portion of the enterprise fund’s $281,630 in funding for temporary help.  

Requested Action of the Board of Supervisors:

Consider adoption of the attached resolution.

Fiscal Impact Analysis:

This action would eliminate 1.00 FTE and add 2.00 FTE in the Landfill Enterprise Fund.  The necessary funding would be achieved with the elimination of the existing recycling/education manager position and reassigning $16,982 in budgeted funding for temporary help.
