City of Tracy department heads to reduce benefits, contribute to pension

TRACY - As part of continued efforts to reduce the City of Tracy's personnel costs, City Manager Leon Churchill is proposing to reduce his compensation as well as that of department heads by approximately 8 percent. The group will begin contributing to their pension, will experience a reduction in city paid deferred compensation, and will continue salary reductions through unpaid furlough days.

The city currently has 11 classifications designated as department heads. Since the adoption of the group’s current Compensation and Benefits Plan in 2007, department heads have taken several steps to lead the city’s efforts to reduce personnel costs. In 2009, department heads chose to forego a 5 percent increase due to the city’s structural budget deficit. In addition, they participated with other employees in taking eight unpaid furlough days, for a total reduction of 8 percent.

Congratulations are in

Blog entry by Manteca Police Chief Dave Bricker:

Congratulations are in order to Jason Bonetti and Mark Rangel for the new additions to their families. Jason has a new baby girl and Mark just added a son to the family. I am happy for both of you. Nothing is more important than family.

Also congratulations to Steve Beermann. He has been selected to receive the Child Abuse Prevention and Intervention Award for "Law Enforcement Officer of the Year". This award was presented in special recognition to those who investigate crimes where the children are at a high risk of abuse and neglect in San Joaquin County. The award is sponsored by the San Joaquin County Children's Services Coordinating Commission. Steve's award will be presented during the lunch program at the annual Child Abuse Symposium held on April 12, 2011, at the Stockton Hilton Hotel in Stockton, California. Great Job Steve. Well deserved.
