LEMOORE — The Lemoore City Council will meet Tuesday and discuss a raise for the city manager, among several other items of new business.

The first item of new business Council will discuss is an amendment to City Manager Nathan Olson’s employment agreement.

The City Council appointed Olson as the City Manager in February 2018 and his annual salary was set to $145,800.

According to the staff report, Council provided Olson with a standard/above standard evaluation in December.

The report also states that it is common practice of the city to provide employees with a merit increase of 5 percent, which Olson is asking for based on his evaluated performance.

If the increase is approved by Council, Olson’s salary would be amended to $153,090 — an increase of approximately $7,290 per year.

According to the staff report, the current salary range for the position of City Manager is $121,297-$154,809. This proposed 5 percent increase would fall within the Council-approved range for the position.

Other items of business that will be discussed include:

  • Creation of a rate stabilization fund.
  • Adopting tax-advantaged bonds post-issuance compliance procedures.
  • Issuance, sale and delivery of water revenue bonds.
  • Council member liaison appointments to regional boards and committees.

There will also be a public hearing about the annexation of Zone 9 of the Public Facilities Maintenance District No. 1, the services and the first annual levy of assessments in the added territory.

During the study session before the regular meeting, Council will also receive an update on the progress of water and wastewater master plans, enterprise fleet management and water bond projects.
