Council to consider personnel changes

Lebanon City Council plans to consider changes to key Senior Citizens Center employees.

Council will meet Thursday for a work session to consider whether to make the center’s management positions city positions. Currently, they are employed under the center’s 501(c)3 nonprofit umbrella.

The change, initially proposed in the city’s 2014-2015 budget, was deleted from the budget before council’s final vote on the budget June 3, along with other personnel-related changes.

According to Councilor Rob Cesternino, he had proposed the amendment striking those items from the budget so council could pass the budget and return to those items after councilors had the chance to further discuss each specific personnel change proposed.

Even though council has passed the budget, they can still change individual items at any point after passage.

Councilors also plan to discuss other specific personnel actions during the work session, including creating a human resources director position and a human resources assistant director, as well as personnel changes proposed by the commissioner of public works, the fire chief and the Jimmy Floyd Family Center director.
