Body

WHEREAS, City officials have become aware that the current allowance for travel expenses for City of Pittsburgh employees does not accurately reflect current actual costs incurred by employees travelling on behalf of the city for their positions; and,

 

WHEREAS, in order to be consistent with adequate amounts of reimbursement so as to encourage training, educational, and representative opportunities in the interests of the City and its employees, the purpose of this amendment is to allow managerial flexibility and annual accountability in setting per diem amounts.  

 

Now, Therefore It be Resolved, That the Council of the City of Pittsburgh amends the City Code at Title One, Administrative, Article Xl: Human Resources Administration, Chapter 181: General Provisions by amending section at §181.06 Allowance for Travel Expenses as follows:

 

§ 181.06 - ALLOWANCE FOR TRAVEL EXPENSES.

 

If an employee or elected official is required by duties to be absent from the City overnight, [he or she] the employee shall be reimbursed in a not to exceed amount as set forth by a separate annual resolution or as part of the annual budget resolution [an amount not to exceed thirty dollars ($30.00)] or such amount as may be specified through collective bargaining, per day for meals, and in addition for the actual travel, lodging and other incidental expenses.
