[Archived] Question #69: Revised Add/Delete List for Consideration in the Final Add/Delete Worksession


Revised Add/Delete List for Consideration in the Final Add/Delete Worksession


The purpose of this memorandum is to provide a revised add/delete list based on the discussions from the Preliminary Add/Delete Worksession held on April 24, 2018. This list will be the basis for the discussions at the Final Add/Delete Worksession to be held on April 30.

The “possible consensus” column has been added to include any items with majority Council support (four or more members) based on the discussions at the Preliminary Add/Delete Worksession. The one item eligible for consideration that does not currently reflect majority support (and therefore is not included in the possible consensus column) is the undedicated affordable housing proposal. The possible consensus column includes:

As part of the add/delete process, staff reviews the items under consideration in preliminary add/delete for refinement of cost estimates and potential impacts on service. The following is a summary of the results of that review for Council’s consideration in final add/delete. The following is not a comprehensive list of items under consideration in add/delete. It is only the items on which staff had comments.

Employment and Training Specialist: Impact of delaying the hiring of a new Technology Support Engineer II for the Emergency Operations Center (EOC) by six months to fund the specialist in FY 2019:

Public Safety Recruitment and Retention Capabilities Contingency: Impact of reducing Police overhires from 17 to 14 per recruit class to fund a portion of the contingency:

Renewable Energy Credits: Impact of reducing the Patrick Henry Recreation Center staffing budget and reducing the employee engagement survey frequency to once every other year to fund an increase in the City’s use of renewable energy:
