DOUGLAS PERSONNEL BOARD

May 15, 2012

Members Present: Ellie Chesebrough, Debby Heinz, Kristen Stevens, Michael Yacino, BettyAnn McCallum
Non-members: Mike Guzinski, Marleen Bacon, Bill Cundiff

 MINUTES: Minutes from April 17, 2012, accepted as written.
 MEETING MINUTE TAKER: Job description isn’t finished but will be done for our June meeting.
 CONFIDENTIAL DATA: Ellie rewrote the rating guide for “confidential data” which will eliminate the first level and start with a score of 15.
 EXPERIENCE: Ellie rewrote the rating guide for “experience” which will replace the one we presently use.
VOTE: THE BOARD VOTED UNANIMOUSLY TO ACCEPT THE NEW “CONFIDENTIAL DATA” AND “EXPERIENCE” RATING GUIDES FOR JOB DESCRIPTIONS.
 LONGEVITY: Marleen and Bill presented the longevity proposal from the subcommittee. They estimated that there would be a financial impact of approximately $22,000 per year if the proposal was accepted. They based their proposal figures on benefits that police receive now. The Board accepted their longevity proposal; however, because of the financial crisis that the Town is facing it will not be presented this year. The proposal is as follows:
“All regular full-time employees covered by the Town of Douglas Personnel Bylaw shall receive a longevity payment based upon the following schedule:
Eleven (11) to Fifteen (15) years: $ 500.00
Sixteen (16) to Twenty (20) years: $ 750.00
Twenty-one (21) to Twenty-five (25) years: $1,000.00
Twenty-five+ (25+) years: $1,250.00
This benefit shall be paid to each employee upon his/her anniversary date and upon reaching each level.”
 TOWN ADMINISTRATOR: Mike has not decided what our role will be since passage of the Special Act. He is still considering the possibilities and does not want to rush his decision.
 BENEFITS: Ellie provided the Board with a comparison of benefits received by Town employees: union & contractual employees vs. regular employees. VOTE: THE BOARD VOTED UNANIMOUSLY THAT THIS INFORMATION SHOULD BE FORWARDED TO THE NEW STRATEGIC BUDGET COMMITTEE.
 BYLAW: Debby brought up the fact that she did not expect our bylaw to be skipped over at the Annual Town Meeting. Mike said that Finance Committee wanted to review it further but that it will be voted on at the June 11th meeting.
 NEXT MEETING: June 19, 2012, at 2:00 p.m.
