City staff members are recommending the addition of seven new full-time positions by hiring new employees or through reorganization.
Among the new employees are a vehicle maintenance technician, two traffic management center operators, a civilian bailiff and warrant officer for the police department and a support service tech for fire administration.
If the new positions are approved, the city would have 699 full-time employees.
Since July 1, human resource employees have processed 2,083 applicants for full-time jobs. About 470 of those applications were for nine firefighter jobs.
The proposed budget does not include across-the-board raises. City staff members are negotiating with the police and fire unions and said they don't intend to include salary increases for nonunion employees until union negotiations are completed.
