May 14, 2014 Reno City Council highlights


Senior Citizen Outreach – H.1
Council unanimously approved to adopt a Resolution granting $10,443 to six nonprofit organizations that provide senior adult outreach programs and services to promote the health and wellness of seniors in the community.

Benefits/Salaries of Elected Officials – J.1

Council gave staff direction to keep intact the existing structure of salary and benefits of elected officials. Staff had been asked to research the existing resolutions establishing salaries and paid benefits for City of Reno elected officials, including the Reno City Council, City Attorney’s Office and Municipal Judges.

Fire Inspection Revenue – J.4

Council unanimously approved a motion to accept staff’s recommendation of a fire inspection revenue alignment between the Building Enterprise Fund and the General Fund. The proposal is to provide fire services (plan review and inspection) for a lump sum payment of $220,000.

As a result, two additional firefighter positions are proposed to be added to the General Fund. At the initial Budget Workshop that took place on April 23, a budget plan was presented that would provide the ongoing funding necessary to retain 15 of the 50 firefighter positions that won’t be funded after July 1, 2014 due to a federal SAFER grant not being awarded to the City of Reno. This would reduce the number of layoffs to a maximum of 33, an issue that will be decided at the May 20 budget adoption meeting set for 1:30 p.m.
