Title
Resolution fixing the number of officers and employees of the City of Pittsburgh, and the rate of compensation thereof, and setting minimum levels for designated positions.

Body
Be it resolved by the Council of the City of Pittsburgh as follows:


Section 1. That from and after the first day of January, 2015, the number of officers and employees of all Departments of the City of Pittsburgh, and the rate of compensation thereof, shall be and the same are hereby fixed and established as herein set forth.


Section 2. To ensure the capacity of the City to provide an effective level of Municipal services which will meet the economic, physical and social needs of its citizens, residents, visitors and neighborhoods during the Fiscal Year for which this Resolution shall be in force, those positions designated by Section 3 of this Resolution shall remain filled for the entire Fiscal Year, subject to any reasonable time periods required to replace existing officers or employees who leave City employment for any reason during that Fiscal Year. There shall be no reduction in the number of filled positions so designated unless authorized by a Resolution amending this Budget Resolution, in accordance with Section 507 of the Home Rule Charter of Pittsburgh. In adopting this Resolution it is the intention of Council to provide funding for the annual Budget at a level which will enable all Departments and Units of City Government so designated to be staffed, equipped and maintained at levels mandated herein.
If, during the Fiscal Year, the Executive Branch determines that the number of employees so mandated in any program can be reduced without substantially effecting the level of services to be provided, the Mayor may request an amendment to this Resolution to accomplish that reduction, and shall include with any request of that nature the reasons for the reduction and evidence as to the impact of that reduction upon the level of services provided.
