|S.F. No. 1419 - Scott County|
|Author:||Senator Claire Robling|
|Prepared by:||Daniel P. McGowan, Senate Counsel (651/296-4397)|
|Date:||March 21, 2007|
The personnel administration system would allow Scott County to create a list of eligible personnel that would be applicable to all county positions rather than for a specific position. The bill would grant Scott County Board the authority to adopt a personnel department and appoint a personnel appeals board. The county board would appoint the personnel director, and the bill prescribes the duties of the personnel director, including adopting county rules to implement the new personnel classification system, and all payrolls would have to be approved by the personnel director.
Scott County would give veterans' preference in accordance with state law rather than the current point system in which qualified disabled veterans would be automatically placed at the top of the list, and qualified non-disabled veterans would be placed directly behind the disabled veterans.
The bill also sets the standards for the personnel board of appeals, it provides a judicial review from the personnel board of appeals in accordance with the Administrative Procedure Act, allows the Scott County Board to abolish the personnel department, and authorizes the county board to make the necessary appropriations to carry out the administration of the personnel system. The bill also authorizes the county to receive financial assistance from the federal government, and there is a provision to ensure that equal employment rights and PELRA rights are not effected by the new personnel administration system.
