Title
Amending the Toledo Municipal Code by repealing Section 2101.01 and enacting a new Toledo Municipal Code Section 2101.01; and declaring an emergency.

Body
SUMMARY & BACKGROUND:
Toledo Municipal Code Chapter 2101 governs the terms and conditions of employment for the City of Toledo's Classified Exempt and Executive Exempt employees. This Ordinance repeals Municipal Code Section 2101.01, Classifications, and enacts a new Section 2101.01.

The classifications of Secretary 3 and Mayor's Assistant 2 are unclassified exempt positions, each currently assigned to a salary group 8 in the Toledo Municipal Code, Section 2101.01. This Ordinance would change the classification title of Secretary 3 to "Administrative Assistant." In addition, the salary group for this position would be changed to group 9. These changes are needed because the nature of the position has changed over time to encompass a much greater level of support and work product than those traditionally categorized as "secretarial."

Moreover, maintaining the title of Secretary 3 for this classification is misleading in terms of a career path within the city. The Toledo Municipal Code and the Civil Service Commission provide for two other Secretary classifications: Secretary 1, assigned to salary group 4, and Secretary 2, assigned to salary group 6. A Secretary 3 classification title is misleading in that it appears as if the natural progression in that type of work is from Secretary 1 to 2 to 3. However, since the Secretary 3 classification is an unclassified position subject to appointment and removal by the head of the department, without a competitive process, a natural career path is not typically followed.

Therefore, changing the title of this classification will separate it from the other classified exempt secretary positions and more accurately reflect the modern duties and responsibilities of the position.
