In April 2017, the Elmore County Commission along with our elected officials (Probate, Revenue, and Sheriff), appointed department heads (EMA, Operations, and Highway) and the county attorney began a thorough review of the county policies and pay system. The County Commission desired to examine every facet affecting its most valuable resource, our county employees. After many monthly meetings, the personnel policy is close to completion, awaiting final review by the Commission and departments. In total, the review process has seen close to 30 meetings; over 60 hours of face-to-face time amongst county officials; and staff time exceeding 100 hours. The Commission’s ultimate goal is to equip the departments with the necessary tools to recruit, retain and reward an effective and efficient workforce to serve the residents of our county.
