Shall Section 303 of the County Charter be amended to remove the requirement that the appoointment of an Acting County Manager must be an existing County officer or employee?
This measure would amend Section 303 to remove the requirement that the appointment of an Acting County Manager must be an existing County officer or employee.
|Arguments For Measure C
|Arguments Against Measure C
|The current provision that the Acting County Manager must be a current employee or officer of the County restricts the Board's choices in appointing an Acting County Manager. The Board of Supervisors should be free to select the best qualified person to fill this important county position and the best qualified person may or may not be a current county officer or employee. The measure would still permit the Board of Supervisors to consider county employees and officers to serve as Acting County Manager. However, the measure also affords the Board of Supervisors a greater range of flexibility in making this appointment. In the event the most qualified candidate is a person who is not currently in the county service, the measure would permit the Board of Supervisors to make an appointment that would best serve the residents of the county.
