CITY OF RANCHO PALOS VERDES <br />MEMORANDUM <br />TO: HONORABLE MAYOR AND CITY COUNCIL MEMBERS <br />FROM: CAROL W. LYNCH, CITY ATTORNEY <br />DATE: January 8, 2014 <br />SUBJECT: Compensation to be Paid to the Deputy City Manager While <br />She Performs Additional Duties as the Acting City Manager <br />(Lynch) <br />REVIEWED: CAROLYN LEHR, CITY MANAGER <br />RECOMMENDATIONS: <br />Approve Compensation for the Deputy City Manager in the Amount of $1000 per <br />Month. <br />DISCUSSION <br />A brief review of other cities that recently have called upon an assistant or deputy city manager <br />to become the acting city manager demonstrates a salary increase of between 6% (in the City of <br />Sunnyvale) or 7% (in the City of Morro Bay) during the time when the additional duties are being <br />performed. Based upon this information, it is proposed that Ms. Petru's automobile allowance <br />be increased from the current level of $150 per month to $500 per month, which is the amount of <br />the current City Manager's auto allowance, and that her salary be increased by $650 per month. <br />These increases would become effective on February 1 st and would continue until a new City <br />Manager is appointed by the City Council and that person assumes the duties of office. Once a <br />new City Manager is appointed and assumes the duties of office, Ms. Petru would return to her <br />duties as Deputy City Manager, and her salary and car allowance would be readjusted <br />accordingly. <br />FISCAL IMPACT <br />For each month, or part thereof, that the Deputy City Manager serves as the Acting City <br />Manager, her compensation will be increased by $650 per month, and her car allowance will be <br />increased by $350 per month. The increase in compensation for Acting City Manager and <br />additional car allowance will be prorated for any partial month. <br />C�? <br />
