Resolution/Document Body

WHEREAS, Tompkins County entered into a Memorandum of Understanding with the Ithaca-Tompkins County Transportation Council (ITCTC) on September 30, 1992 agreeing that “…..staff will be hosted by Tompkins County as an administrative rather than a reporting arrangement…… staff is selected by the Council [with] staffing plan, staff qualifications and salary schedule established by the Council”, and


WHEREAS, Board Resolution No. 99 of 1993 “Clarification of Employment Status - Position of Ithaca-Tompkins County Transportation Council Planning Director” stated the following:

“…the position of Ithaca-Tompkins County Transportation Council Planning Director shall be entitled to the terms and conditions of employment established by this [County] Board for management employees unless otherwise recommended by the Council and established by this [County] Board of Representatives”, and


              WHEREAS, on March 14, 2000, the Director’s salary was modified by ITCTC resolution 2000-01 above the management salary range with the stipulation that the Host Agency, Tompkins County, execute the necessary administrative procedures to implement this modification, and


              WHEREAS, on February 5, 2002, the Tompkins County Board of Representatives passed Resolution No. 6 Affirming Ithaca-Tompkins County Transportation Council (ITCTC) recommendation to establish the ITCTC Planning Director's salary above the salary range, and
