12 <br /> THE CITY OF <br /> CITY COUNCIL AGENDA REPORT <br /> PLEASANTON, <br /> September 19, 2023 <br /> Human Resources <br /> TITLE: INTRODUCTION OF PROPOSED MEMORANDUM OF <br /> UNDERSTANDING BETWEEN THE CITY OF PLEASANTON AND THE <br /> PLEASANTON POLICE OFFICERS' ASSOCIATION FOR A THREE- <br /> YEAR TERM ENDING MAY 31, 2026 <br /> SUMMARY <br /> The Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the City of Pleasanton and the <br /> Pleasanton Police Officers' Association (PPOA) expired on May 31, 2023. <br /> Representatives from PPOA and the City of Pleasanton met and conferred in good faith <br /> and have agreed to a successor agreement. The City's practice is to introduce the key <br /> elements of the proposed MOU, receive input from the public and allow for open <br /> discussion prior to adopting the agreement at the next publicly held City Council meet- <br /> ing. <br /> RECOMMENDATION <br /> It is recommended the City Council obtain public input and provide comment regarding <br /> the key elements of the tentative agreement negotiated between the Pleasanton Police <br /> Officers' Association and the City of Pleasanton. This matterwill be included on the <br /> agenda for the October 3, 2023, City Council meeting for consideration and approval. <br /> FINANCIAL STATEMENT <br /> The financial impact to the City budget as a result of implementing the successor MOU <br /> is approximately $6.9 million through Fiscal Year 2025/26. For Fiscal Years 2023/24 <br /> and 2024/25, additional funding required to cover increased PPOA staffing costs is <br /> approximately $0.5 million. In order not to increase the overall General Fund budget, <br /> budget reductions will be made by freezing certain budgeted/vacant positions as well as <br /> reducing some non-personnel budget items across multiple City departments. <br /> Beyond the first two years, this funding gap is expected to be much larger, <br /> approximately $1.2 million annually starting in Fiscal Year 2025/26 when compared to <br /> baseline increases typically used to forecast staffing costs. Without any new, <br /> sustainable revenue alternative, additional budget reductions across City departments <br /> will likely be necessary. Staff will present necessary budget adjustments as part of the <br /> next biennial budget development process in spring 2025. <br />
