Upgrades for cable TV administrator


Fri, Mar 1st, 2013
Posted in Chatfield Government

The Chatfield City Council at the February 25 meeting, granted two requests submitted by the city’s cable TV administrator, Craig Manahan. Mayor Don Hainlen was absent.

The Personnel Committee and the Cable Access Board had recommended approval of the requests. Manahan will have an increase from a fifty percent full time equivalent position to a two thirds full time position. The upgrade will not result in more wages, but the city will be responsible for more of the cost of his health insurance benefit. Instead of paying half of the premium, the city will now pay two thirds of the premium. At the current rates this will be an increase cost for the city of $127 per month or a total cost of $506 per month. Manahan noted in a letter that he is already working enough hours per week to qualify for the two-thirds time.

Manahan has upgraded his phone to a smartphone from a simple flip phone. The city has been covering 80 percent of the cost of the phone or about $43 per month. The upgrade will now cost the city $75 per month. Manahan estimates that 90 to 95 percent of the phone use is associated with work.
