Required fields are marked * CITY NEWS SERVICE/STAFF REPORT Pasadena Will Allow Vaccinated People to Go Without Masks in Most Settings Starting on Tuesday As part of the consent calendar, the Pasadena City Council on Monday established new classifications for some employees and updated salaries for some employee classifications.“My philosophy is we need to recognize our employees for the work they are doing and compensate them with a rate that is consistent with the marketplace,” said City Manager Steve Mermell.As part of a recent review, Human Resources recommended establishing two new classifications to meet the changing operational needs of the Fleet Maintenance Division in the Public Works Department and the Planning and Community Development Department, as well as updating existing salaries for two employees in the City Manager’s office and the Department of Parks, Recreation and Community Services.The sweep motion established a $139,940 annual salary control rate for the Public Information Officer position. Monday’s sweep motion does not guarantee a raise for the current PIO.According to a compensation survey, the city is currently paying below the market average compared to similar positions with the same scope of authority and responsibility.“Increasing the control rate provides market-based compensation and improved retention for this critical role,” according to the staff report.The annual salary for a Parks, Recreation and Community Services Administrator was set at $151,690.Increasing the salary of this position, according to the report, creates internal alignment with the Parks Administrator, a position that has a similar scope of responsibility, supervision and required qualifications. This classification is part of the Pasadena Management Association (PMA).Two new employee classifications were also created, one of them calling for a senior equipment mechanic, (SEM), responsible for the inspection, diagnosis, repair, and testing of a variety of specialized light, medium and heavy-duty fire and emergency medical services vehicles, as well as other equipment in the city fleet. The position includes an $84,500 annual salary.“None of the current mechanic classifications in the city require experience and expertise related to fire apparatus. As a result, it has been difficult to recruit and retain qualified technicians to maintain the city’s emergency vehicle fleet,” according to a staff report contained in Monday’s City Council agenda.Maintenance and repair of the city’s fire vehicles are currently outsourced to vendors under contract lengthening the time it takes to complete repairs and return vehicles to service.The council also created a new classification for a Neighborhood and Business Services Administrator. The position carries an annual $170,000 salary and reports directly to the director of planning and community development, David Reyes. The administrator would manage the customer-facing functions of code compliance and permitting in the newly established Neighborhood and Business Services Division.“This position will oversee approximately 23 employees,” the report reads. “This senior-level manager will be responsible for managing the city’s built environment through the administration of a variety of federal, state and local neighborhood preservation and improvement programs, vacant lot and property abatement, housing and zoning code enforcement, and property-based complaint tracking and resolution.Other items on Monday’s consent calendar included a review of the city’s annual financial report and its quarterly investment report.center_img STAFF REPORT Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy Herbeauty9 Of The Best Family Friendly Dog BreedsHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyYou Can’t Go Past Our Healthy Quick RecipesHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyWant To Seriously Cut On Sugar?

Hospital ship remains empty as New York battles COVID-19

first_imgA military hospital ship which arrived in New York City on Monday is fighting to stay in a coronavirus-free “bubble” so as not to risk bringing the disease on board, its medical officer said.The 1,000-bed USNS Comfort, previously deployed to conflict and natural disaster zones, was sent to Manhattan to ease the strain on health centers in the city at the epicenter of America’s outbreak by caring for patients other than those diagnosed with the virus. By Friday it had received 21 patients, according to the ship’s press officer Lieutenant Commander Amelia Umayam.  “We consider the USNS Comfort to be in a bubble,” said medical officer Captain Patrick Amersbach as he explained the procedures followed by the ship’s crew to shield it from the virus, including not disembarking for as long as it is docked.Patients are arriving directly from New York hospitals and will be screened in advance to make sure they are free of the coronavirus. For the time being, even relatives of patients are not allowed to board the ship — though Amersbach said a protocol for loved ones to visit was being put in place “because nobody wants to be without their family members.”If a worker needs to board the ship to perform installations or repairs, they must be examined, wash their hands in front of a witness, and put on a mask before being escorted to the precise location on the ship where they will work. Once finished, they will be escorted directly off again.New York City has had more than 57,000 positive coronavirus cases since the arrival of the pandemic and 1,867 deaths. The nearby Javits Center, which has been converted into a field hospital by the US military and was not originally intended to house coronavirus patients, will now do so.But there are no plans for the USNS Comfort to make such a move. “We’re going to try and stay in that bubble,” said Amersbach.Topics :last_img read more

The quiet surrounds of the inner city home is sure to attract bidders at auction

first_img68 Deighton Rd, Dutton ParkNeither of the brothers has lived here for years. Socrates would love to see another family make it their home.“It used to be a gathering place and you feel this is the centre. This is where home is,” he said.The home goes to on-site auction on Saturday July 1 at 10.30am. Brothers Steve (left) and Socrates Mistos are auctioning the family home inDeighton Rd, Dutton Park. Picture: Tim MarsdenStanding in the yard of 68 Deighton Rd, Dutton Park, the first thing you notice is the serenity.It’s a cliched catchphrase, but when a home is 2km from the CBD, and 350m from Fairfield Rd, you don’t expect the most significant sound to be birds. For Socrates and Steve Mistos, it was the setting for an idyllic upbringing. 68 Deighton Rd, Dutton ParkSocrates said his parents bought the home in the late 1960s after emigrating from Europe, and it had always held a special place in the community.“We’d always have people come over, especially from around the area, because we knew a lot of families,” he said.

There are three living spaces, two bathrooms, a two-car garage and multiple utility rooms that make it immediately liveable. Plus the home is set on a 604sq m block – akin to “acreage” in an area such as this.Mr Mistos said despite creeping gentrification, this section of Dutton Park looked likely to maintain its suburban feel in the future. “In this area they don’t allow big developments; it’s not going to change. The council wants to preserve it,” he said.last_img read more
