Circuit Court Clerk Audit Findings (language only)

Item 66 #2h

Item 66 #2h

Compensation Board

Page 47, after line 8, insert:
"I. Notwithstanding the provisions of Item 505, paragraph F.2.e.1., the Compensation Board shall not provide any salary increase to any Circuit Court Clerk identified in the annual Auditor of Public Accounts' report "Virginia Circuit Courts Statewide Report" as having an audit with more than one finding or a repeated finding from the previous audit report."

(This amendment establishes a policy that circuit court clerks shall not receive salary increases when those clerks fail to address audit findings reported by the Auditor of Public Accounts in past years or have multiple audit findings in the current report. The amendment addresses a problem that has been ongoing for a number of years in certain circuit court clerks' offices.)
