County to Disallow Elected Officials to Rack Up Vacation Hours


The county will be eliminating the ability of elected officials to cash out on vacation accrual. Since 2007, elected officials — though they don’t technically take vacations — have been able to accrue up to 80 hours a year in vacation and cash those hours out. Additionally, managers — who haven’t had a pay raise since January 2008 — and unrepresented employees in the county are losing an $80 biweekly employee offset the county used to pay. CEO Chandra Wallar’s contract with the county was also amended to mirror that cut in pay.
