Action Requested
Board of Supervisors - Approve transfer of funding from the General Fund to the Superior Court Fill-the-Gap fund in the amount estimated to be $24,556.00 to cover a Paid Time Off (PTO) payout due to a retirement.
Brief Explanation of Need

Full-time division Pro-tem A Judge Jeff Paupore is retiring on January 4th, 2019. He worked many years as a prosecutor for the county and as a result, has accumulated the maximum Annual Leave payout. When he was promoted to judge several years ago, he brought a leave balance exceeding 700 hours. His retirement payout will occur on January 18th and he will have 684 hours. At his judicial hourly rate of $71.80, this totals $49,111 for his leave payout. He is currently funded 50 percent by the Superior Court general fund and 50 percent by the Court’s Fill-the-Gap fund (Fund 197).

Based on existing process, the Superior Court would be responsible for the first $5,000.00 of the general fund amount with the remaining amount to be paid from the contingency fund.  Typically, special revenue funds (i.e. Fill-the-Gap) would cover the entire amount of the payout based on existing process.  This would have a major impact on the Court's Fill-the-Gap fund balance.  The Superior Court is requesting the Board of Supervisors cover the 50 percent ($24,556) from the Fill-the-Gap with  funds.
