Village of Tularosa - Workshop - September 30, 2008

The Board of Trustees of the Village of Tularosa met in a workshop setting on Tuesday, September 30, 2008. The meeting was held in the Court/Conference Room of the Public Safety Facility located at 609 St. Francis Drive, Tularosa, New Mexico.

Present: Mayor Ray S. Cordova, Trustee Fred Tyler, Trustee Patrick Garcia, Trustee Thomas McKean, Trustee Gloria Sainz, Police Chief Virgil Mayberry, Finance Officer Valarie Delgado as well as Village Clerk Dianna Brusuelas.

Mayor Ray S. Cordova called the workshop to order asking that all rise and join in the Pledge of Allegiance.

Item 1. Review Section 80.01 Salary Ranges of the Village of Tularosa Personnel Policy

Mayor Ray Cordova stated that at this time the Board would work with the Public Safety and asked the board for discussion.

Trustee Gloria Sainz expressed concern over money to justify the increases.

Mayor Cordova felt the idea behind the workshop was to see if the board agrees or disagrees, change or don't change the minimum and maximums.

Trustee Gloria Sainz asked what the minimums and maximums were based on.

Trustee Thomas McKean said they looked at two other communities but just made the maximums and minimums at what the board felt at that time.

Trustee Fred Tyler said they would probably base salaries on the tax base and the general fund income.

Chief Virgil Mayberry presented a proposed change of salaries for the Police Department.

Trustee McKean suggested keeping the minimum as it is and just increasing the maximum side of the schedule.

Trustee Fred Tyler reminded that the village also has PERA now.

Mayor Cordova stated that the scales could be approved but increases to the individual salaries would have to be brought up at a later date.

After much discussion and trying to simplify the ranges the public safety section of the salary ranges was agreed upon. Village Clerk Dianna Brusuelas read back the changes for clarification.

Item 2. Adjourn

Trustee Gloria Sainz moved to adjourn the Workshop and was seconded by Trustee Thomas McKean. Workshop ended at 7:25 P. M.
