Adopt an ordinance amending Sonoma County Code Section 2-8 regarding powers, duties, and responsibilities of the County Administrator. (Second Reading)

end

 

Executive Summary:

Sonoma County Code Section 2-8 outlines the powers, duties, and responsibilities of the County Administrator. Within these powers, duties, and responsibilities, is the role of appointing authority and administrative oversight of specific positions and departments. Following the January 28, 2020 Board of Supervisors Strategic Planning Retreat, direction was given to expand the list of departments that over which the County Administrator is the appointing authority. 

 

Discussion:

Staff recommends the proposed ordinance to amend the powers, duties, and responsibilities of the County Administrator to improve the efficiencies of managing County operations. The proposed ordinance would amend Sonoma County Code Section 2-8 to expand the appointing authority with respect to the group of County department heads that are delegated to the County Administrator.

 

The proposed changes increase the list of departments over which the County Administrator has delegated authority. Currently, the County Code gives the County Administrator appointing authority over the following three departments: General Services, Information Systems, and Emergency Management.  Under the proposed changes, six additional departments would be added to the list: Human Services, Child Support, Human Resources, Permit and Resource Management, and Public Defender.

 

The proposed ordinance, if this action is approved today, it would become effective in 30 days. The proposed ordinance is attached along with a red-lined version to identify specific changes from the current law.
