Batavia looking at hiring human resources director

BATAVIA – The city is considering hiring a full-time human resources director.

Aldermen are set to discuss the idea at Monday’s Batavia City Council meeting. City Administrator Bill McGrath has proposed the city hire a human resources director, who would be responsible for overseeing such tasks as employment services, employee benefit administration, labor relations, employee safety, training and workers’ compensation.

In a memo to aldermen and Batavia Mayor Jeff Schielke, McGrath suggested the city hire a human resources director and eliminate the position of assistant city administrator, which is vacant after Jason Bajor resigned earlier this year for personal reasons.

“An HR person needs time to develop relationships with the employees and especially the bargaining units,” McGrath wrote in the memo. “We have had terrific relationships for the most part, and I feel that the investment in the position is important.”

He noted the vast majority of surrounding municipalities have a human resources person.

“How they handle their administrative duties varies, some by having additional administrative assistants, some by having ‘assistant to’ positions and some by having several interns or management analysts,” McGrath said.

McGrath also suggested the city hold off on hiring a communications/events/administrative aide person until a staffing study is done, which he said could take a few months.
