The matter goes before the council on the consent calendar, which means it could be approved with no discussion unless someone asks that it be pulled off the calendar and taken up as a separate matter.
The recommendation calls for paying Mr. Flint $14,500 per month and authorizing the city manager to negotiate a contract with him. The monthly salary is the same that he's been paid since his July appointment as interim chief.
He received no benefits as interim chief, and Interim City Manager Theresa DellaSanta said determining his benefits as chief will be part of the negotiations.
Also on the May 16 agenda is a public hearing on the proposed 2012-13 fiscal year operating and capital improvement budget; and a discussion of Menlo Park's response to issues and concerns raised by Atherton about the Facebook project's impact on the town, particularly on traffic circulation.
The meeting begins at 7 p.m. in the Council Chambers at 94 Ashfield Road in the Town Center.
