Wednesday: City manager raise among items on Atherton agenda

 

A light agenda is on tap for the Atherton City Council when it meets Wednesday, Oct. 21, starting at 7 p.m. in the town's council chambers, 94 Ashfield Road.

The council will discuss giving city manager George Rodericks the same 2 percent raise that other non-union employees received, upping his annual salary to $203,592. In addition, the proposal negotiated by Mayor Rick DeGolia and Vice Mayor Elizabeth Lewis would give Mr. Rodericks a $400 monthly auto allowance and a $3,000 annual personal technology allowance.

The council will also vote on setting local speed limits, which the town is required to do periodically. All the speed limits would remain exactly as they are currently if the proposal is adopted.

The agenda also contains considerations to revisions of the town's caps on purchases that can be made without bids. The changes match changes in the state's Uniform Public Construction Cost Accounting Procedures, which the town follows.

The revisions allow purchases of up to $5,000 and contracts for professional services of up to $30,000 to be made without bids.
