Commissioners to discuss personnel policy changes

The county commissioners will hold a public hearing at 2: 30 p.m. Wednesday on a proposed ordinance concerning county personnel policy.

The amendment would make two minor changes to the ordinance. The first change would grant the county commissioners flexibility in deciding the effective date of pay changes after a review of job descriptions.

The second change would delete a portion of the ordinance related to pay changes for position reclassifications when the employee's pay exceeds the maximum pay in a lower grade.

Copies of the ordinance are available at the County Office Building.

The hearing will be held in Room 300A of the County Office Building, 225 N. Center St., Westminster.
