Body
DISCUSSION / BACKGROUND
On December 18, 2018, the Board of Supervisors adopted an updated Salary and Benefits Resolution, No. 260-2018. This successor resolution, which repealed and replaced Salary and Benefits Resolution, No. 184-2018, modified the County’s deferred compensation structure for Appointed and Elected Department Heads.

Resolution 260-2018, in part, removed the County’s deferred compensation contribution in the amount of 10% of the amount contributed by an elected department head and the County during the prior calendar year, not to exceed $800 per year.

It is necessary to further amend the deferred compensation structure to clarify that any such changes for elected department heads will be in accordance with State law. Specifically, the matching contribution for elected department heads currently in office shall not be discontinued during their current term. Rather, this benefit shall automatically be discontinued upon the expiration of each elected department head’s now-current term, and shall not be paid in any succeeding term.

The County contribution under this benefit is paid in January of each year. In order to ensure that elected department heads receive their contribution entitlement as was scheduled prior to the December 18, 2018 change to the Salary and Benefits Resolution, this clarifying Resolution also provides that the Board of Supervisors ratifies and approves any payments made to eligible elected department heads of the above-stated benefit occurring between December 18, 2018 and the date of the adoption of this Resolution.
