24-1245 18.Agenda ItemVeteran Affairs Commission to review recommendation by the TOT Committee to approve the use of TOT funding for a permanent .50 FTE Office Assistant (OA) for the El Dorado County Veteran Services Office. Last year, the TOT recommended (and the VAC approved) allocating $21,000 for an extra-help General Trainee to provide staff support to the Veteran Services office. The current proposal is to no longer fund the General Trainee, but to instead fund a .50 FTE (half time) OA at a cost of $37,197. The difference between the two positions is $16,197. ($21,000 + $16,197 = $37,197). In reviewing the two positions, Veteran Services staff determined that the OA position would more comprehensively provide services than the General Trainee.   Not available Not available
