Tampa, FL March 30, 2010 - Mayor Pam Iorio issued a memorandum today to Tampa City Council outlining management changes in the City’s organizational structure. The changes, brought about by the fourth year of declining revenues, will result in a $3 million savings to city government in salaries and benefits.
The Stormwater Department is being consolidated into the existing Public Works Department, resulting in the elimination of the Director of Stormwater position and the associated Stormwater Executive Aide position. The Utility Accounting Division (UAD) will be consolidated into the Water Department. Additionally, the customer service staffs for UAD, Water, Wastewater and Solid Waste will be consolidated providing for the elimination of the UAD Manager position and five supervisor positions among the four departments. The Water Department will eliminate the Reclaimed Water and Continuous Improvement Manager position. The Revenue & Finance Department is consolidating citywide fiscal services and immediate savings will be realized from the elimination of one manager position.
The Clean City Division has been reassigned and consolidated into the Transportation Operations Division of the Public Works Department, resulting in the reclassification of the Clean City Manager to a supervisor position. The Community Affairs Division has been reassigned to the Code Enforcement & Business Tax Department resulting in the elimination of the Community Affairs Division Manager and the associated Community Affairs Executive Aide positions and a supervisor position.
In addition to these changes, three additional manager positions will be eliminated: Purchasing Inventory Manager, Economic & Urban Development Services Manager, and the Growth Management Development Services Constructions Operations Manager.
Employees assigned to positions identified for elimination will be given a 90-day lay-off notice.
