Whoever wins election to the First District on the Sonoma County Board of Supervisors in November will be walking into a potentially much leaner operation.
Susan Gorin and John Sawyer face a runoff election on Nov. 5, as the two highest vote getters in June's primary.
On Tuesday, the current Board will look at proposals that include cutting back existing employee salaries, beginning new employees at reduced pension levels and ending contributions to deferred compensation plans.
This Press Democrat article summarizes the options to be considered, as a means to reduce the increasing burden of county employee pension costs, currently estimated at $94.3 million a year.
What do you think of the options? Is this the route you would take to reduce taxpayer spending at the county level? Tell us in the comments.
