Supervisors Delay Vote on Sheriff's Labor Deal

(Sacramento, CA)

The deal involves a mix of early retirement incentives and increased pension payments. It also includes raises next year – on top of previously-negotiated cost-of-living increases.
 
County officials say the deal is fully paid for – and urged the board to approve it at yesterday’s (Tuesday’s) meeting. But supervisors say they need more details on whether the agreement’s finances make sense. Here’s board chair Roger Dickinson:
 
Dickinson: “It is the subject of enormous public debate – not just in this county but across this state and even the country, particularly in respect to retirement formulas. So I think taking a bit of extra time here is not uncalled for.”
 
Dozens of deputies will be laid off Friday if the deal is not approved.
