Human Resource Director Lynn McNabb presented Whitehall City Council draft legislation at the July 24 meeting approving the job description for the position of administrative assistant to the director.
She is hoping that after posting the position and the interview process she will be able to have someone on board by mid-October.
The job will be unclassified and exempt from the Fair Labor Standards Act, and is considered an "at-will" position appointed by the director of human resources. The salary range will be $24,000 to $41,000.
Minimum qualifications will include an associate’s or bachelor’s degree from an accredited college or university with coursework in human resources, public administration or business management; three to five years progressively responsible experience in human resources or closely related field; or, any combination of education, training and experience which provides the required knowledge, skills and abilities to perform the essential functions of the job.
The person hired will execute basic duties in human resources, such as answering questions concerning employee benefits, polices and procedures; coordinating the workers’ compensation program, developing a comprehensive safety program; coordinating a new hire orientation process and recruiting.
The assistant will also perform clerical duties for the human resources department and the Civil Service Commission, replacing the position of commission secretary. The current secretary will be able to apply for the position.
Council also received draft legislation from City Attorney Cheryl Nester amending two agreements for the cell towers located at John Bishop Park. No new cell towers will be erected. The current ones have the capability to add additional co-locators, which means more services and lessees. The city will receive 33 percent of the rent actually received by the lessees from the co-locators for one and 50 percent from the other.
Council will pass the legislation on the first reading at the August 7 meeting.
The next council meeting will be August 7 at 7:30 p.m.
