Employee Retention - $9.5 Million

On June 10, 2022, 9,548 employees received the $1,000 one-time distribution. Police uniformed employees waived their right to this retention benefit as part of their most current collective bargaining agreement approved in May 2022.

On February 8, 2023, the City Council was provided an update on the COVID-19 Recovery & Resiliency Plan and the ARPA SLFRF Program, including available balances from a competitive process in other categories, program savings, and interest earned. The budget of $10 million for this program was reduced by $500 thousand because of program savings.
