LCI open house presents redevelopment options (June 6, 2009)
The Conyers city council approved the budget for 2010-2011 of approximately $17.4 million at a called meeting Wednesday afternoon.
The council also adopted a revised pay and classification plan which would add three new positions, reclassify one position, and rename some other positions, according to HR Director Dee Buggay.
The new positions are an assistant facility manager, which is still unfilled, an accreditation manager in the Conyers Police Department, and a help desk technician for the IT department.
Tanya Young, formerly with the city of Kennesaw, was hired as the accreditation manager, and Kevin Kameron Kelley was hired as the help desk technician.
The labor foreman was reclassified into another pay grade, but with no pay increase. The positions of Police Officer and Police Officer First Class were renamed Police Officer I and Police Officer II, and Sergeant and Sergeant First Class were combined into Sergeant with a Sergeant First Class pay grade.
The council also adopted an urban redevelopment plan that adopted many of the recommendations of the Livable Centers Initiative study and would allow the city to apply for an "Opportunity Zone" status that could come with tax credits for new jobs.
