Topic: 

A Resolution Authorizing the Chairman of the Board of Supervisors to Sign a Supplemental Pay Agreement with the Constitutional Officers of Fauquier County

Topic Description:

Every four years, the citizens of Fauquier County elect a Sheriff, a Commissioner of the Revenue, a Treasurer, and a Commonwealth’s Attorney.  Once every eight years, the citizens of Fauquier County elect a Clerk of the Courts.  At that time, the Board of Supervisors and newly elected Constitutional Officers agree on whether the County will supplement the pay of the Constitutional Officers and the employees of those officers.  Traditionally, the Constitutional Officers have agreed, in exchange for the Board’s supplementing their pay and the pay of their employees, to comply with the County’s financial, travel and personnel policies including policies related to employee conduct, discipline and termination.  This year, the Constitutional Officers have submitted a proposed agreement which includes compliance with the County’s financial, travel and personnel policies with the exception of the disciplinary, grievance, sexual harassment, equal employment opportunity, conduct, and termination policies.  In those instances, the proposed agreement makes it clear that the employees are “at will” employees of the Constitutional Officers with no rights under the County’s personnel policies as they relate to employee conduct, discipline and termination.  The proposed agreement also provides that the County’s sexual harassment and equal employment opportunity policies will continue to apply until the Constitutional Officers adopt a policy for their own offices.  The proposed agreement runs from January 1, 2008, through the four-year term of the Board of Supervisors and those Constitutional Officers who are on a four-year term.

Requested Action of the Board of Supervisors: 

Consider adoption of the attached resolution.

 

Financial Impacts Analysis:

This resolution does not have fiscal impact under the currently adopted budget should the Board agreed to continue to supplement the salaries of the Constitutional Officers and their employees.
