City departments restructure

Posted

Newburgh City Council approved a resolution for the deletion and addition of a new executive staff position and deletion and addition of several finance department positions.

City Manager Todd Venning presented to Newburgh City Council during their work session last week a resolution to amend the 2022 Personnel Analysis Book with the deletion of one Executive Assistant to the City Manager and add one Chief of Staff position in the Executive Office. Resolutions documents state the approved title change occurred during a regular meeting of the Newburgh Civil Service Commission held on April 20. Along with the title change, the civil service grade, also known as the payment level, is proposed to be changed from a grade three to a grade five.

Newburgh City Council members voted in favor of the resolution to make the title change for the executive office except for Councilman Bob Sklarz. Sklarz raised concerns about the language in the job description about the requirements and qualifications needed for the position.

The city’s finance department was also approved for an office restructure. The resolution adds another amendment to the Personnel Analysis Book with the addition of a junior accountant and one accounting clerk. Within the finance department, a deletion of two senior account clerk positions occurred due to vacancy.
