PERSONNEL POLICY REVIEW COMMITTEE, RecommendatioR~ <br />County Judge Frank Racek, Chairman of the twelve member Personnel <br />Policy Review Committee, appeared before the Board to explain the <br />recommendations of the committee. He stated that the various issues <br />addressed by three subcommittees, which he appointed from the group <br />of twelve, included salaries and wage program, fringe benefits, and <br />personnel policies. The final recommendations are contained in a <br />written report which the Commissioners received. <br /> <br />Judge Racek stated that many of the recommendations contained in the <br />report were also the recommendations made in the'"Cass County Report" <br />in Hay, 1985. The final recommended salary and grade system would <br />allow the county to bring all employees up to the going market rate <br />for their respective jobs based on local private and public sector <br />survey information at a cost considerably less than half of that <br />proposed in Bob Black's final report. In reviewing the work of <br />Mr. Black, the Salary and Pay Grade subcommittee made the basic <br />assumption that his pay grading system was accurate. <br /> <br />Mr. Wieland questioned whether Social Services employees should be <br />included because he felt the County and the State of North Dakota <br />need to make a determination on whether they are to be considered <br />County employees or State employees. Judge Racek stated that the <br />committee did not feel they could separate out one of the largest <br />departments in the Courthouse. <br /> <br />Judge Racek stated that the salary study excluded part-time people <br />because they are not graded, it excludes the County Commissioners, <br />the County Judges, and five people from Extension Service. Mr. <br />Wieland hoped the Commission would consider removing department heads <br />from the study before adopting the report, and address the situation <br />with Social Services employees before including them in the adoption <br />of this report. <br /> <br /> <br />
