REDLANDS >> City administrators signed a new contract last month. General employees are on the verge of finalizing theirs next month. And city officials are hosting an meeting to discuss the contracts with residents at 5:30 p.m. Monday in the City Council Chambers.

“Anyone is welcome to attend Monday’s informational meeting and there will be an opportunity for the public to ask questions,” city spokesman Carl Baker said in an email.

Mayor Pete Aguilar, the city’s negotiator, and representatives from the Human Resources and Finance Departments will be available to discuss details of the agreements and possible effects on city finances.

New memorandums of understanding for the Redlands Association of Mid-Management Employees and the Redlands Association of Management Employees were approved by the council on July 16 after more than a year of negotiations.

The two agreements end furloughs, increase employee contributions to benefits and carry a 3 percent base salary increase. The three-year agreements began retroactively on July 1, 2012, when their last contract expired.

The Redlands Professional Firefighters Association and the Redlands Association of Fire Management Employees agreed to new contracts in October, according to Baker, who added, negotiations continue with the Redlands Civilian Safety Employees Association and the Redlands Association of Directors.
