Item ID Number: 19-4428
Meeting Type: Finance and Administration Committee

Action Comments: Solverson explained the need for a full time public defender, the way that cases are counted, and how the salary reimbursement works. She provided handouts to the committee illustrating that with the change to a full time public defender from a part time one there is only an increase of about $7,000 which will be off set by some savings in other areas. The committee briefly discussed why the Board has to approve a salary they have no say in deciding.

Action: approve
Action Note: the public defender salary adjustment

Seconder: Comparato Scott
