Chief Baer was asked about the hiring of an Assist Police Chief. They would both be working Chiefs. Would work an overlap shift, not with Chief Baer. Going of a prior job description from 2014. There would be a pay increase of a few dollars. Ms. Thompson was curious as to why an essay was required. Chief Baer explained they have used that in the past and Police all over use it. Since reports need to be written the purpose shows reading ability, punctuation, structure and know what they believe as a leader. An essay is a good way to grade that. Why is it so important to have this position now? We have gone 4 years without a fellow supervisor. Council years ago, wanted one and they hired Meyers instead at that time. This person would fill the gap when the chief is away, sick, etc. or if he would leave there is someone already groomed for the position. It is a lot to run the department, the selection process was open to everyone, he was the one to apply. Mr. Carles wanted to know if this would reduce the p/t officers? No. This position is not budgeted. Chris arrived at 7:16. He talked about how this has been requested but has not been established yet. Ms. Thompson asked the Chief if things are getting away from him and a few weeks ago he was offering to pick up more responsibility. Baer answered that that would be additional hours not in his regular routine as Chief and for pay. 2013 is was decided 0-6 not to hire Dan White a 12 yr veteran as part of the department…instead voted 6-0 to hire Mike Meyers in as an officer. Ms. Thompson wanted to know how they came with $19/hr. (Category 9) Mr. Kirk respond it was above the highest paid officer. Meyers interview was on March 29th with the Mayor and Finance Officer. Ms. Goldner wanted to know if everyone had enough information to move forward. Ms. Thompson said all her questions were answered.
