Body
DISCUSSION / BACKGROUND
On November 13, 2018, Item 25 (Legistar 18-1670), the Board approved Resolution 236-2018 adding a new Administrative Technician position to the Department of Transportation's (Transportation) allocations to provide more technical capabilities than what the advanced-level Executive Assistant position was limited to providing. At that time, Transportation informed the Board that if an internal candidate was chosen upon a successful recruitment to fill the Administrative Technician position, that Transportation would return to the Board to request to delete the Executive Assistant position. Transportation is now requesting the Board approve the Resolution amending the Authorized Personnal Allocation Resolution to delete 1.0 vacant full-time equivalent Executive Assistant position. Also, HR just informed Transportation of County Counsel's opinion that the Board has to approve all bargaining unit changes. Therefore, Transportation is requesting the previously approved Administrative Technician position be designated as Confidential.

ALTERNATIVES
The Board could choose to not approve the Resolution. Transportation would have to consider revising it's staffing plan and return to the Board for approval.
