General Counsel Approval:N/A

Committee Recommendation:The Administrative Committee reviewed this item on June 14, 2021 and recommended approval.

CEQA Compliance:This action does not constitute a project as defined by the California Environmental Quality Act Guidelines Section 15378.

 

SUMMARY:  Planning and Engineering Manager/District Engineer, Larry Hampson, retired on May 31, 2019.  Some of his duties were transferred to existing District staff.  However, there is a need for his specialized skills and knowledge of District projects, such as the Sleepy Hollow Intake Facility Project. He will provide assessment and oversight on District projects.  Mr. Hampsonís unique experience and historical knowledge, after 28 years with the District, make him the only individual who can carry out these functions.  The District is also required to have a registered Professional Engineer on staff and Mr. Hampson is a registered Professional Engineer.

 

It would greatly benefit the District to offer a limited-term, part-time contract as a retired annuitant to Mr. Hampson.  The contract would be for Mr. Hampson to act as a District Engineer at his former hourly rate of $78.03, for up to 960 hours from July 1, 2021 through June 30, 2022. He would not receive any benefits, other than those mandated by state and federal law. 

 

RECOMMENDATION:  The Administrative Committee recommends that the Board authorize the expenditure of funds to hire retired annuitant for up to 960 hours of work from July 1, 2021 through June 30, 2022.Approval of this item will be contingent upon final adoption of the FY 2021-2022 budget.

 

IMPACTS TO STAFF/RESOURCES:  The cost to the District for a 12-month, part-time contract would not exceed $85,000.
