MEMO TO: County Department Heads FROM: Linda Martin Warner, Assistant County Administrator RE: Review of Personnel Manual Revisions DATE OF MEMO: September 1, 2006 County Administrator Steve Miner and I met yesterday with Board of Supervisors Vice- Chairman Greg Duncan and Board Member Steve Mallette. We have agreed to give each regular county employee who is interested the opportunity to review the Personnel Manual Revisions and make suggestions/comments during the month of September. A memo stating this with a form for comments/suggestions will be going out to every regular county employee today. Attached is an electronic copy of the revisions. You may email a copy of the revision to interested employees in your department who request it or, for those who do not have email, they may request a paper copy from Fredia Ward (by calling 787-5705). I have also placed a copy in the Team Folder under Personnel Manual Revisions 2006. Suggestions/comments from employees will be collected by the County Administrator and, in October, the Personnel Committee and I will have the opportunity to review them. PLEASE NOTE: Four policies which are needed more quickly for legal and liability reasons will be presented to the Board at their regular meeting in September. At the request of our insurance company, I have made wording changes to Personnel Policy 303.0: Drug and Alcohol Use, Section D(3) and Personnel Policy 304.0: Use of County Vehicles, Section A(1). The language added to Personnel Policy 410.0: Post Employment Health Insurance Program under Scope, and Provisions sections A and B, brings us in compliance with state code. The issue of possible payment of a portion of young retirees’ health insurance costs will require an actuarial study to determine costs and will be considered by the Board at a later date. The Electronic Communications policy is as originally recommended by the Personnel Committee. Please review these policies again. I will be asking the Board to give these policies a January 1, 2007 implementation date in order to give me time to develop the necessary forms and meet with employees about these changes.
