    A couple of issues facing Austin City Councilmen on December 8 were tabled and rescheduled for the Council's end-of-year meeting, which is now set for Tuesday, December 29.
    The city has been seeking CDL training for a couple of its employees in its Street and Sanitation Department. A quote of $3,200 was received in November but was taken under advisement.
    When employees have their CDLs, they are more valuable to the city because they are allowed to drive the larger trucks. They also increase their own take-home pay. Noted Councilman Richie Buchanan, “I like the scaled pay on (this) certification. That gives them an incentive to get their CDL. At the same time, they need a good opportunity to pass the test.”
    Speaking of pay, Mayor Doug Campbell asked the Council, “What if they go through the training we provide and still don't get their CDL? Are there any repercussions?” No, the Council determined, except that, of course, the employee doesn't get the increase in pay such a certification would provide.
