How come the supervisor/manager class is only being reduced by 5.7% when the auditor recommended between 4% and 15%? Why is it such a low percentage when these are high cost positions that could help with budget reduction?


The auditor’s Management Staffing Analysis, brought forward in September 2020, provided different scenarios with reductions and potential cost savings. 

In providing both a high and a low number, the report gave Council a sense of the staffing changes that would be needed for each number, and the potential savings, but did not look at the impact to City services. As Council and Administration would need to bring in that context, the report did not recommend a particular percentage or range of cuts. 

Council asked Administration to return before budget deliberations with scenarios to reduce supervisor full-time equivalents (FTEs) by five per cent and 10 per cent. This report went before Council on November 18, 2020.

To date, Administration has incorporated reductions in supervisory FTE positions of 112.3--just over six per cent of all supervisory positions--over the 2020 to 2022 operating budgets. They are working toward the rest of the 10 per cent target and there will be updates to Council through Supplemental Operating Budget reports in spring and fall 2021.
