Item 66 #3h

Compensation Board

Page 67, line 13, strike "10,056" and insert "10,060".

(This amendment provides for the creation of four deputy positions for the cities of Buena Vista, Norton, Falls Church, and Emporia. These localities' sheriffs have no law enforcement responsibilities. Currently, because the Compensation Board does not have a minimum staffing level provision for sheriffs' offices without law enforcement responsibilities, these offices have only one Compensation Board funded deputy. The sheriffs' offices in these localities have reported being unable to meet court security, service of process, and other duties in a timely manner. This amendment is a companion to an amendment providing the funding for these four positions.)
