6.06.240 Request Annual CPI Increase to be Different than Calculated.

(Added by Ordinance No. 185495; amended by Ordinance No. 187339, effective October 16, 2015.)

A.  The contractor’s Board of Directors may recommend that the annual CPI adjustment be set to an amount other than the CPI calculation, but not less than zero for a license year.

1.  The Board must pass a resolution during a regular board meeting and submit the resolution, any minutes from the meeting and the results of the vote to the Revenue Division no later than June 10th.  The resolution must contain the following information:

a.  The reason why the board is requesting the annual CPI adjustment to be set at a rate that is different than calculated;

b.  What the CPI adjustment amount for the license year should be; and

c.  The impact on the upcoming budget that will result if a different CPI adjustment is made, specifically as it relates to contract employee wages and contract service levels.

d.  The impact to District services.

2.  The Revenue Division will review the information from the contractor's Board of Directors and evaluate impacts to contract employee wages to ensure wages for these employees do not decrease inappropriately as a result of a lower CPI adjustment.  The Revenue Division will make a recommendation to City Council if a different CPI adjustment is warranted for the upcoming license year.

3.  City Council must approve a different CPI adjustment prior to August 1st;

4.  An approved different CPI adjustment will apply to the license year that begins on October 1st.

B.  Once one or more different CPI adjustments have been approved by City Council, the Revenue Division has authority to adjust the CPI component in the fee rate formulas in Subsections 6.06.200 A.9., and 6.06.210 A.6.  The Revenue Division will document via written policy all changes to the CPI calculation as a result of City Council approval and this policy will supersede the calculation defined in Subsection 6.06.020 E.
