Alderman Gately moved that the salary of the City Auditor should be reduced to $95,595.84 which was seconded by Alderman Raymond. Alderman Raymond stated that the raises for the five department heads was previously defeated, that the items are now in the budget, and he questioned whether this was proper. President Denaro stated that the money is in the budget to fund the raises if the ordinance is later adopted. Alderman Raymond withdrew his second and the motion was not put to a vote. Alderman Drapeau stated that the Deputy Auditor position is a new position as it is not presently occupied, that it is not the time to bring new people on the payroll, that the cost is greater for health benefits and pension liability, and that he agrees that the position would enhance reporting in the department but this is not the right time to add new positions. Alderman Raymond stated that this position is warranted as every bill of the city passes through that department, that there are also numerous regulations that have to be followed, and that although he is against adding anything new to the budget by approving this the position of the city will be improved. Alderman Mercer-Bruen stated that the city’s independent auditor Powers & Sullivan indicated that this position was necessary and that this is not just adding a new position. Alderman Gately stated that he is not opposed to the position however the auditor had missed over $200,000.00 that was not reimbursed to the police department, that Powers & Sullivan should have noticed that, and that the tax liabilities will rise with this budget. Alderman Drapeau stated that a number of positions have not been filled, that the City Auditor does a great job, that the concept has merit but the economy has not turned around, and that this is not the right thing to do at this time. Alderman DiTucci stated that that city has one auditor, that the city is setting itself up for failure, that the deputy auditor is a necessary job, and that the auditor may have missed the $200,000.00 of unreimbursed funds because there is not deputy auditor. Alderman Haggerty stated that filling the position helps the city’s financial picture. Motion made and 2nd to reduce Deputy Auditor on Page 4 by $59,430.05, ROLL CALL: Anderson – No, DiTucci – No, Drapeau – Yes, Gaffney – No, Gately – Yes, Haggerty – No, Mercer-Bruen – No, Raymond – No, Denaro – No, Motion Fails.

Alderman Drapeau stated that a new Senior Appraiser position should not be added in the Assessors Department in this economy. Alderman Haggerty stated that this is not saving money but shifting money, that the department is currently paying an outside firm to perform these duties, and that this will bring the position in-house which will also add other value to the department. Alderman Raymond stated that this could be established as a performance based contract, and that he is in favor of a performance based contract rather than adding a new employee. Alderman DiTucci stated that this could be better managed by an outside contract rather than bring in a new employee. Alderman Anderson stated that engaging outside consultants and appraisers could be at a higher cost than hiring a full-time employee, and that this is a revenue generating position. Alderman Mercer-Bruen stated that the city should not hire a consultant to fill a revenue generating position, that some property was severely undervalued by this firm, that there is no control over the consultant with their outside relationships, and that a report could be requested from the Assessors as to how much revenue was generated. Alderman Drapeau stated that this is not a financially neutral position, that there are cost for health insurance, vacation, pension and since this is a union position there is an education incentive as well. Alderman Gaffney stated that the person doing this job will bring value to the city of an amount greater than the expense. Alderman Drapeau stated that the work should be done with an outside consultant. Alderman Gately stated that the department has done without this positions for years, there is also the cost of a car, that the City Council wants to hold the line on taxes but is adding a new position, and that there is no guarantee that this new person will generate new revenue. Alderman Mercer-Bruen stated that the city paid $70,000.00 for a consultant for these duties but several properties in Ward Five and Ward Six were severely undervalued, and that this method does not work. Alderman Gately stated that there are five people in the department and he asks why these staff members are not doing the job. Alderman Haggerty stated that there are savings shifting from an outside consultant to an in-house position. Motion made and 2nd to suspend the rules to hear from the mayor, all in favor, 9-0. Mayor Galvin stated that the Deputy Auditor and Senior Appraiser are financial positions and are essential, that there will be no car for the position, and that the city’s new growth is $797,000.00.
