The Yelm City Council tonight adopted Ordinance No. 1002 amending the 2015 Salary and Benefit Schedule by adding an exempt Public Works Manager position, re-establishing the Finance Director and Senior Accounting Clerk positions, and setting an effective date.
“The 2015 Budget, including the Salary and Benefit Schedule was adopted by City Council in December 2014, (Ord 992) and the Salary Schedule, Appendix II amended in March 2015, (Ord 997 and 998). Since that time, the departure of some personnel afforded the opportunity to evaluate the organization of those departments. In so doing, it was determined that two of the now vacant positions could be combined into one, thereby creating a new position of Public Works Manager and filling the needs of the current city operations. The Finance Director and Senior Accounting Clerk positions, established and filled in prior years but currently vacant, are being re-established for use as the needs of the city grow.”
