A standardized classification and pay plan was approved by Commissioners Court, with implementation scheduled for the April 30 payroll."The objective of this plan is to have equal pay for equal work," said Human Resources Director Raul Silguero.Silguero reported that the changes saved over $14,000 in salaries and expects the savings to increase as employees with longer tenure retire or leave the county.Exceptions to the county's Classification and Compensation Plan include the Sheriff's Office, which has it's own step and grade plan, and about 337 positions overseen by the Board of Judges, Silguero said.The new plan is the culmination of months of review and planning, which began with a committee comprised of Precinct 4 Commissioner Joseph Palacios, Precinct 2 Commissioner Eduardo "Eddie" Cantu and County Clerk Arturo Guajardo Jr.In reviewing salaries, Silguero found that most are at or below the mid-range for the position.Implementation is pending approval of the plan from Civil Service Commission, which meets on April 19."I would like to thank you and your staff for all your hard work," said County Judge Ramon Garcia. "You all are to be commended for your efforts."
