Glenn County supervisors to discuss personnel director position
Glenn County aupervisors are looking to fill the county's personnel director position.
A closed session review of employment applications for the position is set Tuesday morning after the board takes action to separate the post from county counsel's office.
Since December 2010, County Counsel Huston Carlyle has served the dual post of interim personnel director following the retirement of long-time Personnel Director John Greco.
The move saved the county money in tight financial times, board members said.
However, handling two jobs has proven more time consuming for Carlyle, he said, so the board determined it is time to put a dedicated person in charge of that department.
Carlyle also has had to back out of representing the county on some personnel matters because of the conflict of having both positions — requiring the hiring of outside counsel.
Tuesday's meeting begins at 9 a.m. in the board's chambers at the Willows Memorial Hall, 525 West Sycamore St.
In other business, the board will consider a request from Planning and Public Works Director John Linhart to support renewal of the Glenn County Recycling Market Development Zone for another 10 years.
It also will look at the Hamilton City Wastewater Pumping Station Study.
The county is seeking estimates for the preliminary engineering and design of the project and authorize submission of it to the state for final review.
Authorization of modifications and to use it as a guiding document in the development of the project and future applications also is requested.
Health and Human Services Agency Director Scott Gruendl is seeking approval to apply for Re-Entry Work Program funding from the Sierra Health Foundation and permission for him to sign agreements if the funding is granted.
The purchase of a sport utility vehicle police interceptor with Assembly Bill 109 funds also is on the agenda.
Commission appointments, a donation from the Hamilton City Women's Club to the Sheriff's Department and an employment extension in the Human Resources Agency round out the agenda items.
