Super Department

Super department equals super waste?

Concerns are being raised about the huge salaries and waste that taxpayers will incur if the BOS approves the proposed 'One-Stop Shop.' New managerial positions with large salaries are part of the proposal, which is the opposite of the goal to create a leaner, more efficient process.

Here are links to newspaper articles, letters, and the agenda regarding this proposal set to be heard again at the Tuesday, December 4, 2012 Board of Supervisors meeting.
