Addressing the Commission: There are two ways to address the Commission during the meeting. These are 1) speaking to the Commission regarding an item already on the agenda, and/or 2) speaking to the Commission about a new topic not on the agenda. Speakers will be asked to keep their comments brief, and allotted approximately 3 minutes per speaker, per topic.

    1. Items on the Agenda Speakers may comment on any item on the meeting agenda in order to share information for consideration by the Commission immediately before the Commission begins deliberation on the item. A speaker slip must be completed and provided to the Director prior to the agenda item.

    2. Items not on the Agenda Item C (Public Comments) provides the opportunity where individuals may address topics that are not listed on the agenda. The Brown Act restricts the Commissioners from engaging in a discussion of non-agenda items or issues raised during public comment except to acknowledge receipt of the information, refer it to staff for further study or refer the item to a future meeting. The Commission may not take any action on issues or topics presented during Public Comments.

    Placing Items on a Future Agenda Any member of the public may request that a matter within the jurisdiction of the Commission be placed on the agenda of a regular meeting. The request must be in writing and must describe the item to be discussed with sufficient detail including the history of the issue and how it is related to the Personnel Commission. Also to be included is any information or material that the requestor wishes to be reviewed by the Commission regarding the issue. It must be submitted to the Personnel Commission Director at least five (5) working days before the scheduled meeting date. Items submitted less than five (5) working days before the scheduled meeting date may be postponed to a later meeting date to allow sufficient time for consideration and research of the issue. The Commission Chair and the Director shall decide whether a request is within the subject matter jurisdiction of the Commission. Items not within the subject matter jurisdiction of the Commission may not be placed on the agenda. In addition, the Commission Chair and/or Director will determine if the item is merely a request for information or whether the issue is covered by an existing policy or administrative procedure before placing the item on the agenda. The Commission Chair and/or Director shall decide whether an agenda item is appropriate for discussion in open or closed session, and whether the item should be an action item, information item, or agenized under Public Comment.

    Action to be taken:

    CLASSIFICATION REVIEW RECOMMENDATION: COMMUNICATIONS CLASSIFICATION SERIES

    X Revision to Classification Description

    Title Change

    Reclassification

    Reallocation

    Establish Classification

    BACKGROUND AND CURRENT CONSIDERATIONS: In anticipation for recruitment of the Electronic Systems Technician, and following challenges during the most recent recruitment, Personnel Commission Staff met with the Communications Supervisor and reviewed the minimum qualifications for the classification. It was determined that the current requirement of completion of an approved apprenticeship program in electronics does not actually exist for electronics systems. It is recommended that this requirement be removed from the classification description for Electronic Systems Technician. Additional changes are recommended to the Basic Function section and the first job duty to add clarity to the job description and a Distinguishing Characteristics section was added. The class descriptions for the Communications series will be reviewed as part of the Classification Review Cycle. In the interim, it is proposed to revise the Telecommunications Technician and Communications Technician descriptions to include a Distinguishing Characteristics section, as required by Personnel Commission Rule 30.300.3. The classification descriptions are being brought forward and now include a Distinguishing Characteristics section. No other substantive changes have been made. RECOMMENDATION: It is recommended the Personnel Commission approve the changes to the Electronic Systems Technician classification as presented. It is also recommended the Personnel Commission approve the additions of the Distinguishing Characteristics sections of the Communications Technician and the Telecommunications Technician classifications as presented.

    Action to be taken:

    CLASSIFICATION REVIEW RECOMMENDATION: HUMAN RESOURCES SPECIALIST

    X Revision to Classification Description

    Title Change

    Reclassification

    Reallocation

    Establish Classification

    BACKGROUND AND CURRENT CONSIDERATIONS: In preparation for recruitment of the Human Resources Specialist, the Personnel Commission Director reviewed the job duties and minimum qualifications for the classification. It was determined that the recruitment volume of the Personnel Commission department prohibits the realistic inclusion of detailed classification and compensation focused duties within the Human Resources Specialist classification. Further changes are recommended to the whole of the job description to better represent the functions of the classification and to add clarity. Duty statements were reordered to demonstrate their frequency and importance; for example, recruitment activities such as posting, screening, examination, and interview duties were listed higher to reflect their focus. Additionally, it was determined that the Education and Experience section should be adjusted to better represent the level of training and experience necessary to be successful in the classification. Candidates may demonstrate the necessary knowledge and abilities for this classification through a combination of increasingly responsible clerical experience where Human Resources functions were part of their role; for example, candidates may have had experience with the personnel requisition processes and other related Human Resources duties. RECOMMENDATION: It is recommended the Personnel Commission approve the changes to the Human Resources Specialist as presented.
