The County Administrator addressed the request to contract for consulting services for Information Services.  Mr. Brandon Shults, Information Services Director, echoed the CAO’s sentiments that the Contract with Revolution Consulting, a firm he has worked with in the past, will provide the additional technical support for specific projects which Staff does not currently have.  He explained that this support will ensure that the projects proceed in a timely manner.  Mr. Schultz indicated that this additional technical support will also be a benefit to the County in reducing the amount of training time which would be required to bring the Staff up to the same level of expertise for certain technology.  Mr. Shults explained that the main area of expertise and assistance this contract will provide is in the area of security.  He and the County Administrator explained the need to provide appropriate security measures for the County’s infrastructure, if the County is going to proceed with the upgrades of the systems and to provide to the public data through the internet.  Supervisor Hambleton questioned whether this contract could wait until Budget Hearings.  The County Administrator responded that it was an option and explained that a delay in this contract would result in delays to project deadlines and moving forward with the system upgrades and implementation of the necessary system security.  Moved by Supervisor Lent and seconded by Supervisor Hambleton to approve the Contract between the County of Inyo and Revolution Consulting for technical consulting services for the period of June 18, 2002, through December 31, 2002, in an amount not to exceed $7,500, contingent upon the Board’s adoption of a FY 2002/2003 Budget; and authorize the County Administrator to sign, contingent upon the appropriate signatures being obtained.  Motion carried unanimously.

Recess/

Reconvene

The Chairperson recessed open session at 11:25 a.m., reconvening at 1:15 p.m., with all Board Members present.

 

COA-Preliminary Budget

The County Administrator introduced the FY 2002/2003 Preliminary Budget, highlighting the specific budget items being requested and asking the Board to take each recommendation individually.

 

 

CAO-Budget-IMAAA/Budget Amendment

The County Administrator explained that the request to fund a $42,011 appropriation from Contingencies to the IMAAA Budget was a result of a personnel matter.  Mr. Mendez explained that Step increases for A and B Par employees had been applied differently than what was called for in the personnel rules and regulations and as a result of this oversight being brought to the attention of the County adjustments were made to bring A and B Par employees step increases into compliance and to pay the retroactive reimbursement.  Mr. Mendez explained that all other departments had the ability of absorbing the increases within the existing budgets with the exception of the Senior Program.  With regard to the recommendation that the “cash flow” loan be paid back in succeeding years, Mr. Mendez and the Board discussed how loans made by the General Fund to other funds are tracked and paid back, with Mr. Mendez explaining that this was a function of the Auditor.  The Treasurer, Mr. John Treacy, in response to a question from Supervisor Hambleton, explained that the County Treasury does not fund the loans.

 Moved by Supervisor Bear and seconded by Supervisor Dorame to amend the FY 2001/2002 County Budget as follows:  (a) increase appropriations in Contingencies Budget Unit  087100, Contingencies (Object Code #5901) by $42,011; (b) increase appropriations in General Revenues and Expenditures Budget 011900, Operating Transfers Out (Object Code #5801) by $42,011; and (c) in IMAAA Budget Unit 612500 increase estimated revenue in Operating Transfers In (Revenue Code #4998) by $42,011 and appropriations in the  Part-Time Employees (Object Code #5012) by $42,011.  Motion carried unanimously.

 

CAO-Personnel/ Hiring Freeze Criteria

The County Administrator reviewed the staff report and recommendations regarding the modification of the existing hiring freeze to be a “selective” hiring freeze.  Mr. Mendez reviewed the proposed criteria for rating those positions being requested to be filled.  He explained that he would be combining the position requests to be agendized in a consistent manner on a monthly basis.  He also said he would provide a recap of the Board’s previous position actions in order to provide a forum whereby the new position requests could be evaluated and compared to prior requests. The Board and Staff discussed the proposed scoring points for the various criteria items, with Supervisor Arcularius requesting that the total points for a fully non-general fund position be adjusted from a 5 to 4 in order to adjust the disparity between non-general fund positions and general fund positions.  She explained that she did not want it to be perceived that non-general fund positions were of greater importance than a general fund position.  The Board and Staff discussed the disparity of definitions for mandated in regard to many County programs, with the County Administrator providing specific examples of how a service and/or program may be mandated but the staff to provide the service and/or program may not be defined nor mandated.  Supervisor Lent expressed his concern with decreasing the point value for non-general fund positions, indicating his desire to see the total remain at five.  The County Administrator also provided further clarification that the “selective” hiring freeze would mean that he is suspending delegation of authority to fill not only permanent positions, but also part-time, temporary, and seasonal without Board approval.  Moved by Supervisor Bear and seconded by Supervisor Hambleton to modify the existing hiring freeze to be a “selective” hiring freeze and accept the criteria for evaluating position requests as amended to reflect a total of 4 points for fully funded non-general fund positions.  Motion carried on a four-to-one vote, with Supervisors Arcularius, Bear, Hambleton and Dorame voting yes, and with Supervisor Lent voting no.

 

CAO-Personnel/ Equity Study

The County Administrator provided additional information and rational and further justification for the recommendation to conduct a countywide job classification study.  Mr. Mendez explained that most jurisdictions perform classification studies every five to seven years and that it has been over ten years since Inyo County has done a study of this type.  Mr. Mendez explained that the reason for recommending a countywide study as opposed to the request for only the fiscal and accounting positions was because the price per position for the small study was almost three times more than the cost per position of the countywide study.   Mr. Mendez also explained that the general rule of the results of classification studies is that one-third move up, one-third stay the same, and one-third are higher than they should be.  The County Administrator and the Board discussed the ramifications of postponing this item until after Budget Hearings, with Mr. Mendez, explaining that it would just mean that the study would begin later, and that there is a possibility that the cost may increase slightly because the Contract price is only locked in through the end of June.  The Board and Mr. Mendez also discussed the County’s ability to implement any changes identified by the Study, with Mr. Mendez explaining the implementation process and saying that he would envision that it would take a year or more to implement changes.  Mr. Mendez also explained that just because there is a study done, there is no obligation to implement the changes.  The County Administrator also informed the Board that the Union concurs with the recommendation for a countywide classification study.  Moved by Supervisor Bear and seconded by Supervisor Lent to approve the concept of a countywide job classification study, and directed the County Administrator to bring this item back during the Budget Hearings for further consideration of a contract that would begin the study.  Motion carried unanimously.

 The County Administrator clarified that the request to approve the Memorandum of Understanding between the County of Inyo and the Inyo County Employees Association for an Equity Study of All County Positions in the event of the Board’s conceptual approval of the countywide job classification study, would also be returned for consideration during the Budget Hearings.  He went on to clarify that because the Board has approved the concept of the countywide classification study, the request for authorization to prepare a contract that would begin the study of the fiscal and accounting positions was a moot item.

  

CAO-Info Serv. - Hercules Technologies Contract

The County Administrator provided additional information and further justification for the request to approve, in concept, the continuation of a contract with Hercules Technologies.  He explained that there are ongoing projects which require the continued expertise of Mr. Walt Boyle of Hercules Technologies, which include Sheriff’s Radio Network Upgrade and the CAD/RMS Project.  Mr. Mendez highlighted some of the problems which have been encountered with the Sheriff’s Radio Network explaining that because of roadblocks in the County’s ability to obtain and pay for microwave technology the entire system is being redesigned.  Mr. Mendez reviewed the funding sources for the Contract explaining that a healthy portion of this contract is covered by the Sheriff’s AB443 money.  Mr. Mendez clarified that the bottom line is the work must be completed and if the County does not have the assistance of Hercules Technologies than the work would have to be performed in-house, thereby delaying the critical projects Information Services is currently working on.  The Board and Mr. Mendez discussed the potential of postponing this contract until after the Budget Hearings, with the County Administrator explaining that all work would be suspended on the projects until the Contract is in place.  He expressed his concern with loss of coverage and the need to provide continuity for the projects.  Mr. Mendez indicated that should the Board approve the concept of this contract and/or the contract for airport marketing strategies, either one or both Contracts would be returned next week for the Board’s consideration.  Moved by Supervisor Lent and seconded by Supervisor Hambleton to approve in concept the continuation of the Contract with Hercules Technologies and direct the County Administrator to return a Contract for Board consideration.  Motion carried unanimously.

 

P.W.-Bishop A/P/ Boyd Contract

The Board and the County Administrator discussed the recommendation for approval of a consultant services contract with the Boyd Group for airport marketing strategies.  Mr. Mendez explained that in the County’s efforts to attract a carrier to this area it has become apparent that the County needs the assistance of industry insiders to help prepare a suitable presentation.  Mr. Mendez also explained that because of the interest of many residents a special committee to the County Administrator has been formed to help him move the search for an airline at the Bishop Airport forward.  Ms. Joy Melgard, Mr. Gary Bailey and Mr. Martin Luther of the committee addressed the Board to support the Contract.  Moved by Supervisor Bear and seconded by Supervisor Dorame to approve in concept staff’s pursuit of consultant services with the Boyd Group for airport marketing strategies; and direct the County Administrator to return the contract, as appropriate, for future Board action.  Motion carried unanimously.

 

CAO-Budget/ FY 2002-2003 Preliminary Budget

The County Administrator presented additional recommendations for the Board’s consideration of a Preliminary FY 2002/03 Budget.  Moved by Supervisor Bear and seconded by Supervisor Lent to   adopt the Fiscal Year 2001/2002 Board Approved Budget as the Preliminary Budget for Fiscal Year 2002/2003, per Staff’s recommendations and amendments, and approve the fixed assets as recommended by Staff.  Motion carried unanimously.
