Legislative History

Acting Body Date Agenda Item Action Sent To Due Date Returned Pass/Fail

Board of County Commissioners 4/8/2014 5B Adopted P
REPORT: First Assistant County Attorney Abigail Price-Williams read the foregoing proposed ordinance into the record. Chairwoman Sosa opened the public hearing on the foregoing item and seeing no persons appear wishing to speak, closed the public hearing. In response to Chairwoman Sosa’s inquiry regarding the four-year Sunset timeline, Commissioner Jordan said four years would provide sufficient time to determine the effectiveness of the First Source Hiring Referral Program. She noted the program only applied to contracts for goods and services. Responding to Chairwoman Sosa’s inquiry, Assistant County Attorney David Hope advised that this proposed ordinance would sunset in May 2016, which would be four years from the date of the initial enacting ordinance. Commissioner Moss said the Board must ensure that legislation approved for programs or initiatives were implemented. He expressed concern regarding the status of legislation he had sponsored, providing an alternative opportunity for County employees who wanted to lodge a complaint, and noted he would revisit this issue. Commissioner Moss also noted he would be revisiting the issue of reports, as he believed reports should come back to the Board to create some level of accountability. In response to Commissioner Jordan’s inquiry regarding who was responsible to ensure that legal language was included in contracts approved by the Board, First Assistant County Attorney Price-Williams noted the responsibility was possibly a combination of the Administration and the County Attorney’s office, depending on the structure of the legislation. Commissioner Jordan said she would meet with the County Attorney’s office to discuss this issue since it could be debated by the Administration that it was not their responsibility. Hearing no further questions or comments, the Board proceeded to vote on the foregoing resolution, as presented.
