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: Executive Assistant/Clerk of the Board, Arlene Tavani, retired on December 30, 2020.Most of her duties were transferred to her replacement, however, there is a need for her specialized skills and knowledge of the District, such as dealing with historical document retention, dealing with Public Records Act request, other policy related work, etc. She will provide assessment and training on as needed basis to the District. Ms. Tavaniís unique experience and historical knowledge, after 35 years with the District, makes her the only individual who can carry out these functions.

 

It would greatly benefit the District to offer a limited-term, part-time contract as a retired annuitant to Ms. Tavani.The contract would be for Ms. Tavani to act as a part-time Executive Assistant at her former hourly rate of $40.57, for up to 80 hours from July 1, 2021 through September 30, 2021. She 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 80 hours of work from July 1, 2021 through September 30, 2021.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 3-month, part-time contract would not exceed $4,000.
