Subject: Resolution approving a new GIS Technician position in GIS Division of the Information Technology Department
Staff recommends approval of a new GIS Technician position in GIS Division of the Information Technology Department
Several years ago, four GIS positions were eliminated. It was anticipated that two positions would need to be added back as the use of GIS grew. The amount of data tracked and functionality provided has increased. New, accurate GIS data is changing the daily operation of the City’s utilities and utility personnel continue to find new ways to use this information. This has resulted in increased requests to provide additional data and functionality from the GIS Division. The work load required to provide up-to-date GIS data and create the new tools and functionality the utilities demand has grown beyond the limits of available staff time. The addition of a new GIS Technician position is needed to meet the demands being placed on existing GIS staff.
1. Approve the new GIS Technician position in GIS Division; or,
2. Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate
The Fiscal impact for FY 2011-12 is:
Since the primary responsibility of this position will be mapping Stormwater infrastructure, the Public Works Director has approved this position to be funded by the Stormwater Fund.
Future fiscal years will provide appropriate budgeted amounts.
