THE BOARD OF SUPERVISORS OF THE COUNTY OF SIERRA DO ORDAIN as follows:
Ordinance Section One:
Section 2.04.070 of the Sierra County Code is amended to read:
2.04.070 Supervisors' Salaries
(a) Purpose and Intent
The Board of Supervisors finds that it is important that the compensation paid to members of the Board of Supervisors is established in a manner that will serve to encourage a cross section of the members of the community to run for the office of Supervisor. The Board further finds that the demands of the office of County Supervisor typically requires the devotion of considerable time, both in gathering information and in representing the citizens and the County in various meetings, which are in addition to the regularly scheduled meetings of the Board of Supervisors.
The Board finds that it is appropriate for the Board to adjust the compensation received by Board members in order to (1) adjust the salaries for Supervisors as has been done for the County employees; (2) provide for an increase to offset for increases in the cost of living and (3) compensate Supervisors for the loss of longevity pay increases to promote continued service.
