As part of the push by new board members to cut expenses at the Georgetown Divide Utility District, a progress report on a compensation study was given Tuesday by Shelly Anderson of Bryce Consulting.

Anderson told the board April 12 the “data elements” she would examine were base salary, longevity pay, employee and employer share of defined benefits retirement payments as well as deferred compensation contributions. Participation in Social Security, insurance contributions, paid leave policies and retiree health care will also be included.

Georgetown’s wide range of services for its 3,765 customers spread over 8,000 parcels on 74,000 acres and the district’s 24 employees will be compared to 11 other districts: Amador County Water Agency, El Dorado Irrigation District, Groveland Community Services District, Nevada Irrigation District, North Tahoe Public Utility District, Paradise Irrigation District, Placer County Water Agency, San Juan Water District, Solano Irrigation District, Stockton East Water District and Tahoe City Water District.

GDPUD has the smallest staff and EID the largest at 222 employees.

GDPUD has 12 classes of employees, including one general manager, one business/finance manager, one operations manager and a water quality manager. Two supervisors are on the survey list: a maintenance supervisor and a distribution supervisor. Other employee classes include administrative aide, canal operator, distribution operator, maintenance worker, wastewater technician and water treatment plant operator.

Director Kathy Otermat asked that the survey include the ratio of labor to revenue, union affiliation and current or historical information.

Anderson said she would ask about new employees or recent change. “Well ask if they’re planning to make a change.

Otermat asked about education and licensing, to which Anderson replied the she would “compare certification to certification.”

“If appropriate we’ll start negotiating with the union next month after we receive the information,” said GDPUD General Manager Hank White. “Next thing you’ll have is a draft report.
