<br />~ <br /> <br />M I NUT E S <br /> <br />ARCADIA CITY COUNCIL <br /> <br />JANUARY 25, 1962 <br /> <br />I <br /> <br />Pursuant to Resolution No. 3370, members of the City Council met <br />in the Council Chamber of the City Hall on January 25, 1962 at <br />7:30 P.M. <br /> <br />PRESENT : <br />ABSENT : <br /> <br />Councilmen Butterworth, Camphouse, Reibold, Balser <br />Councilman Phillips <br /> <br />OTHERS PRESENT: Personnel Board Members Ehr, Hastings, Winslow <br /> <br />The City Manager presented Mr. J. Lyle Cunningham, Vice President <br />of Griffenhagen-Kroeger, Inc. who spoke about a new method of <br />compensating public employees, such method, he stated, having <br />been developed by his firm for the purpose of correcting certain <br />deficiencies in the present method of compensation, and that such <br />new pay plan has been installed in the cities of Hartford, <br />Connecticut and Lakewood, California; that it can be used by <br />any governmental agency, modified only in its details and made <br />directly applicable to their operational situations. <br /> <br />Mr. Cunningham continued, stating in substance that the proposed <br />pay plan recognizes a number of different factors and treats them <br />separately, such as: <br /> <br />(1) The base rate, which is set in fair relation to competitive <br />rates in the labor market in order to assure the public agency <br />of its fair share of qualified employees; <br /> <br />(2) Increments of varying amounts beyond the hiring rates to <br />be authorized over varying periods of time are established for <br />each class to recognize and compensate for the improvement and <br />growth on a job normally expected of the average employee; <br /> <br />(3) A separate evaluation is made of each class. The plan <br />provides for a separate recognition for length of service to <br />encourage employees to remain with the public agency; <br /> <br />(4) Exceptional service beyond the normal requirements of the <br />job is recognized. <br /> <br />I <br /> <br />Discussion then ensued and various cases were explored and Mr. <br />Cunningham answered numerous questions asked of him by members <br />of the Council and the Personnel Board. <br /> <br />At 9:15 P.M. Mr. Cunningham left the meeting and at 9:20 P.M. <br />Councilman Butterworth was excused from the meeting. <br /> <br />At 9:25 P.M. Mayor Balser adjourned the meeting insofar as the <br />Council was concerned, in order that the Personnel Board might <br />conduct its adjourned meeting for the purpose of further discus- <br />sing the subject matter and other matters that might come before <br /> <br />said Board. ~4~~~ <br /> <br />Christine Van Maanen, City Clerk <br />
