BARBER TO SERVE AS <br />CITY MANAGER <br />ISSUE: <br />The issue presented for the City Council's consideration is the approval of an Employment <br />Agreement between the City of Riverside and Scott C. Barber, setting forth the terms and conditions <br />of his employment as City Manager. <br />RECOMMENDATIONS <br />That the City Council: <br />Approve and authorize the Mayor to execute the attached Employment Agreement with <br />Scott C. Barber; and <br />2. Adopt the attached Resolution amending the Master Salary and Fringe Benefits <br />Resolution No. 20152 to reflect the changes set forth in Attachment A. <br />BACKGROUND <br />On December 5, 2011, after a formal recruitment process was completed, the City Council <br />unanimously appointed Scott C. Barber as City Manager. The terms of the agreement provide for <br />an annual salary of $280,500.00 and the same fringe benefits received by the Executive <br />Management Group as currently established by City resolution. <br />It is necessary to revise the Master Salary and Fringe Benefits Resolution to delete a variety of <br />enhanced benefits which were provided to the former City Manager in accordance with his contract. <br />The enhancements to be removed include the following: elimination of the consolidated annual <br />leave bank; elimination of the provision whereby the City pays the entire cost of family health and <br />dental coverage, elimination on an annual deferred compensation contribution, and elimination of a <br />fully paid Long Term Care and Disability Insurance package. Further, Mr. Barber will not receive <br />the 5% salary differential which was previously provided to serve as the Executive Director of the <br />Redevelopment Agency. <br />33 -1 <br />
