Found this on the January 3rd meeting notes in the workbook section ......

TO: Doug Adkins, City Manager
FROM: Kay Sauer, Human Resources Specialist
SUBJECT: APPOINTMENT – INCOME TAX SUPERINTENDENT
We are recommending the appointment of MISTY NICELY to the position of Income Tax
Superintendent in the Department of Finance, Division of Taxation. Ms. Nicely is currently
employed in the department as the Acting Income Tax Superintendent. She will fill the
vacancy created by resignation of Sandra Mueller in 2015.
Ms. Nicely will be assigned to Salary Range 176, Step C, which provides a salary of
$2,455.36 biweekly, $63,839.36 annually. The effective date of the appointment is January
4, 2017.

It is good to work in the public sector. Do we need an Income Tax "Superintendent" level and do we need to pay this level almost 64 grand here? Where does this level position itself with a manager's or supervisor's level? Higher or lower and if higher, why not pay less to do this work at another, lower level? Is this really necessary? Why the "interim" tag since 2015 after the resignation?

And what would be the "superintendent's" daily job duties in this capacity to earn this salary? Job responsibilities are never spelled out in the promotion letters. Wouldn't this be helpful to whoever approves this to know why they are paying someone 64 grand in this case? I would want to know what the taxpayer is getting for their money before the approval. If the approver has no knowledge to compare pay with job duties, then it becomes yet another rubber stamping episode.

if this lady is whom I think she is, she is a very nice person who seems very knowledgeable and makes dealing with the city tax dept much less aggravating. Seems competent. We could do a lot worse. Still a pretty generous gig considering bennies.

As for the Goetz deal--shame on them
haven't talked with anyone who thinks that this deal is good or makes sense
