MOUNT VERNON — An ordinance establishing the compensation for an assistant director of Utilities will be on Monday’s City Council agenda. The measure sets the salary at $59,420.

However, the job description for the position has not yet been approved by the Civil Service Commission. That is expected to happen the first week of March.

Council is also expected to have an ordinance on the agenda enacting the permanent 2019 budget for the city. Council is conducting its annual budget review meeting today and Mayor Richard Mavis said the plan is to have the ordinance ready for Monday’s meeting.

Before the legislative session, four committee meetings are scheduled. The first is a Budget and Finance Committee discussion on the budget.

At 6:30 p.m. the Employee and Community Relations Committee will discuss Civil Service Commission and Council roles.

At 6:45 p.m. the Utilities Committee will discuss the amended DKMM Solid Waste District Plan. The resolution approving the revised plan is on the agenda for final approval.

At 7 p.m. the Planning and Zoning Committee will discuss amendments to the Property Maintenance Code. The amendments add to the list of specific items that constitute violations of the code, but is mostly aimed at increasing the Property Maintenance Enforcement officer’s ability to levy fines on non-compliant property owners.

An ordinance increasing the fines for handicapped parking violations is on the agenda for second reading.

Other items before council Monday will include:

•A resolution authorizing the auditor to pay bills from 2018.

•Authorization for the auditor to make a number of supplemental appropriations.
