RESOLUTION - Directing the City Manager to create a policy requiring the inclusion and evaluation of key performance indicators in City contracts.


FINANCE, GOVERNANCE AND PUBLIC SAFETY COMMITTEE recommends "IMMEDIATE ADOPTION AS A COMMITTEE SUBSTITUTE"
Ernest Rouse Acting City Manager and Jane Brown, Executive Council testified on this ordinance. This ordinance directs the City Manager to create a policy requiring the inclusion and evaluation of key performance indicators in City contracts. Due to the COVID 19 pandemic there were many contracts for long term contracted employees that expired April 30, 2020. This ordinance directs the City Manager to evaluate and justify the renewal of some long term contracts. Several long term contracts that were up for renewal on April 30, 2020 have not been renewed due to COVID 19. To preserve the integrity of the daily operations there was an advance placed on the passing of this ordinance to shorten the time it will take to get key contract workers back to the positions they encumber.
Ayes: 6 - Shields, Hall, Parks-Shaw, Robinson, Barnes Jr., McManus

 1. Staff from the Finance Department will present alternate five-year financial plan scenarios for period beginning FY 2020-21.
 
 Scott Huizenga and Kolby Kriznowski, Office of Management and Budget presented. The presentation of the five-year plan scenario illustrated the Baseline Recession and the Balanced Recession scenario. The Baseline Recession scenario broke down the most obvious indicators such as wages and benefits, the current debt service, inflationary growth, and revenue growth using assumptions gathered from the 2008 financial crisis. The Balanced Recession scenario illustrated a 6.6% overall reduction in programs and service levels, funding sources, and a new initiative to offset the revenue impact of a recession. We are in the middle of the economic event that is transpiring because of the COVID 19 outbreak. We are in the fiscal year that we expect much of the economic impact to occur; usually, when these projections are made, it is not during the forecasted economic crisis. As a result of the 2008 projected financial crisis, no new employees will be hired through the forecast period and a conditional hiring freeze estimated at $1.3 million per year in General Fund Savings. Employer Contributions will increase by 5.0% per year. Salary increases for all employees are capped at 2% per year, including collective bargaining and non-represented employees.
 
 2. There may be additional general discussion regarding current Finance, Governance and Public Safety issues.
