TITLE
Recommendation to adopt resolution approving an exception to the 180-day waiting period for Public Agencies pursuant to Government Code 7522.56 and 21224 to hire Charles Tripp for a limited duration to work in the Energy Resources Department. (Citywide)

DISCUSSION
On January 1, 2013, the Public Employees’ Pension Reform Act added Sections 7522.56 and 21224 to the Government Code, which set forth post-retirement employment requirements applicable to all retirees who are employed by CalPERS employers on or after January 1, 2013. This change added the requirement that all retirees must wait 180 days after their retirement date before they are eligible to begin post-retirement employment with a CalPERS agency. An exception to the 180-day wait period can be made if a public agency certifies the nature of the employment and that the appointment is necessary to fill a critically needed position before 180 days have passed. The appointment must be approved by the governing body of the employer in a public meeting and may not be placed on a consent calendar.

The Energy Resources Department requests City Council approval to hire Charles Tripp, Manager of Electric Generation, as a Retired Annuitant-Management Support NC, effective January 2, 2021 for a limited duration, to provide technical oversight of operations and business administration of the Southeast Resource Recovery Facility (SERRF) plant and the contractor. Since Mr. Tripp’s proposed start date is less than the required 180-day waiting period subsequent to his retirement on December 19, 2020, City Council approval to hire Mr. Tripp is required. The approved rate of pay will be $87.146 per hour. This amount represents the hourly rate he will receive upon retirement and is within the minimum and maximum compensation paid to other employees performing comparable duties as listed in the City of Long Beach’s (City) publicly available pay schedule and will be funded through regular SERRF operating funds.
