Inglewood is offering vaccination bonuses of $1000 each to employees

The Inglewood City Manager’s office is asking the council to allocate $674,000 in America Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funds to provide one-time vaccination incentives during the regular Sept. 20 city council meeting.

Based on the proposed figure of $674,000, they anticipate paying 674 employees, including part-time workers.

Inglewood received $31 million in ARPA funding to replace lost revenue, pay bonuses to essential workers, respond to the widespread negative impact of the pandemic, and invest in water, sanitation and broadband infrastructure.

To be eligible, employees must be fully vaccinated by Tuesday, November 1st and still be an active employee on November 4th. The payments will be made separately from her paycheck on November 18 and are subject to taxation.

Employees hired after February 6, 2022 are not eligible.

The city will close its current fiscal year on September 30th.

The city will present the budget for fiscal year 2022-2023 after approving the vaccine stimulus, which has a nearly $6 million surplus as the council earmarked $10 million from ARPA funds in the Sept. 13 general fund. You can read the proposed budget here.

Inglewood Mayor James T. Butts announced that his re-election campaign is scheduled to begin on October 1, the first day of the new fiscal year.
