TMP-4924 1  Action ItemB. Recommendation to approve a correction of a cost of living adjustment (COLA) and a PERS salary adjustment for unclassified, non-represented confidential and administrative employees, presented to and approved by the Board on April 6, 2021. The correction would be amending language stating: PERS has notified the District that there is a scheduled rate increase planned for July of 2021. The increase is going from 29.25% to 29.75% for Regular members, and from 42.50% to 44.00% for Police/Fire members. Staff is recommending that a 3.25% COLA be offered to unclassified, non-represented confidential and administrative employees thereby reducing the COLA to a net of 3% to follow PERS Employer-Pay Contribution guidance of the employer paid plan by splitting the increase between the employer and the employee. For FY21/22 the increase is .50% therefore this increase should be split evenly amongst the District and the employees by .25% each thereby resulting in a net COLA increase of 3%.
