SUBJECT:
Title
CONSIDERATION OF RESOLUTIONS FOR: 1) 180-DAY WAIT PERIOD EXCEPTION FOR CALPERS RETIRED ANNUITANT AND 2) INTERIM CHIEF DEPUTY CITY CLERK APPOINTMENT AND APPROVAL OF RETIRED ANNUITANT EMPLOYMENT AGREEMENT- MOLLY MCLAUGHLIN PERRY

Body
I. SUMMARY

The attached resolutions, if adopted by the City Council, would appoint a retired annuitant to the vacant position of Chief Deputy City Clerk for limited duration, approve and authorize the City Manager to sign the employment agreement, and approve a 180-day wait period exception for her to commence work as a retiree within six months of her retirement date. (A CalPERS retired annuitant must typically wait 6 months following retirement to begin work for a CalPERS agency as a retiree.) For the 180-day wait period exception to be approved, the City Council must certify the nature of the employment and that the appointment is necessary to fill a critically needed position. The City Clerk's office is in urgent need of staffing support due to the current vacant Chief Deputy City Clerk position and the recent departure of the City Clerk.


II. RECOMMENDATION
Recommendation

TAKE the following actions:

1. ADOPT Resolution No. 21-052 approving an exception to the 180-day waiting period for the position of Interim Chief Deputy City Clerk; and

2. ADOPT Resolution No. 21-053 appointing Molly McLaughlin Perry as Interim

Body
III. ALTERNATIVES

TAKE another action the City Council deems appropriate.
