Pursuant to Chapter 52, Sections 57(e) and 90(e) of the Montgomery County Code (Development Impact Tax for Transportation Improvements and Development Impact Tax for Public School Improvements, respectively) the Director of Finance has adjusted the tax rates set under Sections 57(a) and 90(e).  As prescribed by law, the Director must adjust the tax rates by the annual average increase or decrease in a published construction cost index specified by regulation for the two most recent calendar years.  The Director must calculate the adjustment to the nearest multiple of 5 cents for rates per square foot of gross floor area or one dollar for rates per dwelling unit.  Based on the change in the Engineering-News Record’s Baltimore Construction Cost Index for calendar years 2013 and 2014, the existing rates were increased by a rate of 3.41 percent.  The rates were adjusted to the nearest 5 cents for rates calculated per square foot of gross floor area (GFA) or adjusted to the nearest dollar for rates calculated per dwelling unit.  Table 1 provides the new rates for the Development Impact Tax for Transportation Improvements, while Table 2 provides the new rates for the Development Impact Tax for Public School Improvements.

Request for Bargaining Unit Exclusion and Classification Change

Department of Permitting Services

I have reviewed the request that the position of Administrative Specialist II, position #015298, be removed from the MCGEO, Local 1994 bargaining unit and should be exempt from Union Membership, and changed to class code 000151.

It has been stated this position has been moved from the Customer Outreach Section to the Central Services Unit in the Director’s Office, providing direct administrative support within the immediate office of the Director.  Under Article VII, Section 33-102(4) (E) of the Montgomery County Code, County Collective Bargaining Law, states “an employee who provides direct staff or administrative support to the head of a principle department, office, or agency, or to a deputy or assistant within the immediate office of a head of a principal department, office, or agency,” thus provides for the exclusion from the bargaining unit.

Based on the information provided, namely the position of Administrative Specialist II, position #015298, it is determined that the position meets the requirements of Section 33-102(4) (E) of the Montgomery County Code, County Collective Bargaining Law and, therefore, is approved for exclusion from the bargaining unit.

Request for Bargaining Unit Classification Change

Department of Recreation

I have reviewed the request that the position of Health and Wellness Program Manager I, Grade 23, should be exempt from Union Membership.

It has been stated that this position reports directly to the Director of the Department of Recreation.  Under Article VII, Section 33-102(4) (E) of the Montgomery County Code, County Collective Bargaining Law, states that “an employee who provides direct staff or administrative support to the head of a principal department, office, or agency, or to a deputy or assistant within the immediate office of a head of a principal department, office, or agency,” thus proves for the exclusion from the bargaining unit.

Based on the information provided, namely the position of Health and Wellness Program Manager I, Grade 23, that reports directly to the director of the Department of Recreation, it is determined that the position meets the requirements of Section 33-102(4) (E) of the Montgomery County Code, County Collective Bargaining Law and, therefore, is approved for exclusion from the bargaining unit.
