CONSENT AGENDA- January 24, 2006
Special Pay Incentive - Facilities Management-Correctional Facilities Crew
n the late 1980's, the Facilities Management Division had difficulty in recruiting and retaining
employees to maintain the 33rd Street Correctional Facilities. The Correctional Facility was
viewed by employees as an undesirable work location compared to other work locations
throughout the County.
n order to ensure highly qualified staff were available for maintenance of the Correctional
Facilities, Facilities Management established a "Special Pay Incentive" of twenty-five (25) cents
per hour for employees when responding to the needs of Corrections and working within the
Correctional Facility. This incentive was established in the Fiscal Year 1989/90 budget, and
originally paid for out of a budget accounting line for special pay. Currently, this incentive is paid
for directly out of the salaries budget account.
After a recent review, it was learned that while this special incentive pay was approved by the
BCC through the budget process, the payment of these funds was never authorized by the BCC.
Instead, it was authorized by County Administration via a February 9, 1993 memo explaining the
incentive and outlining operational guidelines for administering the incentive. In order for the
incentive payment to continue, the Payroll Department is requesting that BCC approval be sought
at this time.
n addition to the approval to continue the Special Pay Incentive, Facilities Management has
requested the incentive pay be increased to fifty (50) cents per hour for each hour worked at the
33rd Street Correctional Facility by Facilities Management Division employees. There has been
no increase in special pay since the inception of this incentive. This increase, amounting to
approximately $15,600, was included in the FY 2005/06 budget, which the Board approved in
September 2005. Currently, twenty-seven (27) non-exempt Facilities Management employees
working at the 33rd St. Correctional Facilities receive this Special Pay Incentive.
