Further, an oral summary of the salary and benefits recommended action must be presented at the meeting where the final Board action is taken.  (California Government code §54953, 54956)

 

Karen Fies was initially appointed as the Director of the Human Services Department on September 27, 2016 for a three-year term, ending on September 26, 2019. The recommended action extends the term of the current agreement for an additional two years, through September 26, 2021.

 

Discussion:

The Director of the Human Services Department reports to the Board of Supervisors through the County Administrator and is responsible for providing quality, client focused, cost-effective services to meet the needs of the community. The Director oversees four divisions, which determine eligibility and deliver human services in accordance with local, state, and federal regulations.

 

Following a nationwide recruitment, Ms. Fies was initially appointed to the position on September 27, 2016 for a three-year term, from September 27, 2016 through September 26, 2019. The second amendment continues Ms. Fies current salary at the “I” Step of the salary range, which is $ 212,447.95 annually. In recognition of Ms. Fies’ 33.5 years of distinguished service and her willingness to continue to serve for an additional two years, the County will increase her vacation hours by providing an additional 104 hours and increasing her maximum accrual bank by that amount.  Other benefits and compensation are included as prescribed in the County’s Salary Resolution 95-0925.
