The Council’s action would authorize staff to conduct community outreach on the two issues in April and develop a plan for Council consideration.In other actions, the Council may adopt a $138 permit fee for sidewalk vendors. A state law that took effect Jan. 1 authorizes sidewalk vending in all California cities; however local governments are permitted to set restrictions and collect fees from vendors.The City Council meeting will begin at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 6 in the Council Chambers, 1424 Mission St., South Pasadena.

USA: Fleet Feedback Prompts Enlisted Retention Board Changes

first_imgBack to overview,Home naval-today USA: Fleet Feedback Prompts Enlisted Retention Board Changes View post tag: Naval June 13, 2011 View post tag: feedback Responding to requests made to the chief of naval personnel (CNP) during his visit to the operating forces in Fifth Fleet, the Navy announced changes and clarification to the Enlisted Retention Board (ERB), June 9.NAVADMIN 180/11 extends the deadline for Sailors to request a rating conversion and updates how these requests will be considered. Additionally, the new message provides eligibility clarification for Sailors not scheduled for Perform-to-Serve (PTS) adjudication in fiscal year 2012, and creates an additional exemption for Sailors enrolled in or selected for commissioning programs.As CNP Vice Adm. Mark Ferguson explained, “Based on feedback from our deployed forces, we have revised the conversion application timeline and process to retain the best Sailors in their rating, and have given our Sailors more time to complete their conversion packages.”One of the most visible changes in the updated guidance surrounds how conversion applications will be handled. Specifically, these requests will not be reviewed until after the ERB has selected Sailors for retention, and only those Sailors who were not selected for retention within their rate will be considered for conversion. In doing so, ratings will be able to keep their most qualified candidates, while still providing Sailors an additional opportunity for continued service in another rate.Also, based on the difficulties described by deployed Sailors in meeting previously announced conversion application deadlines, CNP has directed the ERB to accept all submissions received prior to the board’s convening date of August 15, 2011. This will allow Sailors to obtain the results of certain tests, such as the ASVAB, to be included in their applications for conversion.Initial ERB eligibility guidance excluded Sailors who were subject to PTS adjudication in FY12. This created some uncertainty in the Fleet regarding Sailors who are not subject to PTS, but who are in an ERB-eligible paygrade and rating. NAVADMIN 180/11 clarifies ERB eligibility to include E-4 to E-8 Sailors who are not subject to PTS adjudication, regardless of their End of Active Obligated Service as extended (“soft” EAOS, or SEAOS) date.Finally, an additional exemption has been authorized for those Sailors currently enrolled in or selected for an enlisted commissioning program.The ERB will enable the Navy to shape our future manpower requirements in a fair and transparent manner. Board members will include a diverse group of professionals representing different ratings, geographic locations and warfare perspectives who will rely on their best judgment and fleet perspective throughout the process.[mappress]Source: navy, June 13, 2011; Share this article View post tag: board View post tag: News by topic View post tag: Prompts View post tag: Enlisted Authorities View post tag: Retention View post tag: Navy View post tag: changes View post tag: fleet USA: Fleet Feedback Prompts Enlisted Retention Board Changes View post tag: usalast_img read more
