    Just came across this....maybe the CC will re-think not getting rid of cell phones.IRS Targets Employer-Provided Cell Phones"The use of company-issued mobile phones could trigger new federal income taxes on millions of Americans as a 'fringe benefit'.""The IRS proposed employers assign 25% of an employee's annual phone expenses as a taxable benefit. Under that scenario, a worker in the 28% tax bracket, whose wireless device costs the company $1,500 a year, could see $105 in additional federal income tax."http://taxprof.typepad.com/taxprof_blog/2009/06/wsj-irs-targets-employerprovided-cell-phones.html

    If this recap is correct, the Lodi police department has one mid- management position for each officier. I have no idea how many support people are needed for each officier but this seems a little rich.The city has 54 firefighters but only six mid-management postions. This seems a little lean.

    It is shocking that with 106 employees 52 are considered mid managers. Is this the normal ratio for public safety? Maybe its time for professional managers to take over chief jobs. Throw in the benefits and constant begging for money and its no wonder public safety is strangling cities.

    Illegal: I believe you are refering to the "Executive" Management - which are included in the category above the Mid Managers. As a percentage, the Mid Managers are giving up roughly 4.7% in base pay to furloughs and 3% in City deferred comp match for a total of 7.7%. I belive the executive management gave the same percentages. At least that is my understanding.

    Ms. Creamer and Bonnet, could you break those down into percentages? And does the mid-management assn. include all city staff? Didn't they just get a raise from manager king less than a year ago?
