California Code Regulations Section 570.5 governs and requires the adoption of updated publicly available salary schedules by the governing body. The proposed Council action satisfies these applicable requirements.

New Class Specification: Assistant Director of Community Development (Job Code 038)

The Administration recommends the creation of a new class specification titled Assistant Director of Community Development (Job Code 038) to meet the structural and increasing needs of the Community Development Department.

Approval and Adoption of the Unclassified Salary Plan

The City of Santa Clara contracts with the California Public Employees' Retirement System (CalPERS) to provide retirement benefits for employees in both classified and unclassified positions.
