Some county job descriptions revamped

-A A +A
By Jennifer Garcia

In an effort to meet the operational needs of the county and as a result of the countywide job description review, Human Resources Manager Sharyl Hofer, in conjunction with consulting group Valliant and various county managers and employees, have revised and drafted new job descriptions.

Hofer and consultants Mike Canfield and Shannon Mick were in council chambers Tuesday night to present councilors with a suggested motion and to discuss the process through which they went to revise and draft the job descriptions. After discussion, the motion to approve the job descriptions, in addition to the FY 2009 Salary plan, was passed 7-0.

According to Personnel Rule 201 (Job Descriptions), there is a requirement stating that all job descriptions must be reviewed not less than once every four years. Information presented in the motion on Tuesday states that the last countywide review was conducted in FY 2003 with ongoing reviews being conducted each time recruitment occurred. During the budget process for FY 2008, the recommendation was made and approved to initiate a comprehensive classification review.

Phase One was to review and update each job description as they are the cornerstone for Phase Two, which is a review of the compensation systems and complete new market study on all positions.
