MARTINEZ, Calif. – Jim Jakel will return as Martinez’s interim city manager after Rob Braulik leaves at the end of the month, the Martinez City Council decided Wednesday, Dec. 16.
Braulik has been Martinez’s city manager since Feb. 4, but announced Nov. 17 he was resigning.
Jakel was one of three people who took turns as interim Martinez City Manager between October 2013, when Phil Vince left the job, and Braulik’s hiring.
The agreement calls for Jakel to be paid $98.45 an hour. The city will make payroll contributions and withholding as required by Social Security.
He won’t receive benefits or any California Public Employees Retirement System credit, but he will be compensated for city work performed away from city-owned sites.
Although his employment will be temporary and part time, Jakel will be considered a Martinez employee but not a member of its civil service.
He is expected to be at City Hall 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Mondays, and 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Tuesdays, Wednesdays and some Thursdays. He may take two vacations of up to 13 days and the occasional day off.
