Supervisors: State woes, salaries, and air service

inyosups 1-4-11Our boards of supervisors have scheduled meetings for this week. Today, the Inyo Supervisors planned a special meeting at 9am in the boardroom.  The County Administrator planned to ask the Supervisors to okay an amendment to the exclusive negotiation agreement with Joseph Enterprises.

Inyo County wants to negotiate construction and leasing of a county consolidated office building in Bishop.  The amendment would extend Phase 1
to February 28, 2012.

A regular board meeting happens Tuesday in both Inyo and Mono.  In fact, both Boards of Supervisors will talk about a measure that deals with California counties performing more state-mandated services and getting state funds for those services.  This issue looms large for all counties, and MONO COURTHOUSEGovernor Brown has plans for this issue too.

The Mono Board may authorize the annual contract between the Mono Sheriff’s Department and the Forest Service for enforcement of laws against trafficking of drugs on Forest lands.

Also from the Sheriff’s Department – a resolution of appreciation for Officer Dave O’Hara who will retire.

The Board will consider an employment contract for County Counsel Marshall Rudolph.  The cost for the new year amounts to $248,474 for salary, retirement and benefits.

Mammoth Lakes Tourism Director John Urdi will talk to the Board about air service research results.  Urdi will also ask the Board to participate in an Air Alliance committee and to confirm when they will allocate an air service guarantee in the new fiscal year budget.

    Wow!; $250k for a country lawyer.

    Maybe that Lincoln dude knew what he was doing after all.

    What’s really cool is that, in addition to his $250K in salary and benefits, the public pays Mr. Rudolph’s Rotary Club membership fees. This obscenity is due to Mono County Resolution R02-049, adopted in 2002, which allows Mono County’s well-paid management employees to be reimbursed with public funds for their cost of joining do-gooder clubs; the Board of Supervisor’s rationale for this perk is that these public servants need a financial incentive to join these community organizations. Curiously, however, the Board of Supervisors provides no such incentive in the resolution for Mono County’s non-management (i.e. less well-paid) employees. Just thought you’d like to know. Thanks.

    That amount isn’t just for benefits and salary; its also for office space, their own staff, investigation costs, etc. which isn’t paid for directly by the county but by the lawyer under their “expense account”.

      The Board agenda stated that the $248,474 is $166,332 for salary, $36,427 for PERS employer contribution, and $45,716 for benefits.

      Borders,
      There is no “liberal, progressive agenda” here. In fact, you would be in error if you tried to label me or the company. We are for decency and our fellow people.
      Some of your posts have bordered (no pun intended) on obscene. That’s why they were trashed.
