Relating to Etowah County; to amend Section 45-28-121 of the Code of Alabama 1975, relating to the county personnel board; to further provide for the per diem of members of the board for meetings and hearings.

Section 1

Section 45-28-121 of the Code of Alabama 1975, is amended to read as follows:

§45-28-121.

(a) In Etowah County, there is hereby created and established a personnel department for the government and control of all employees and appointees holding positions in the classified service, as defined in Section 45-28-121.03.

(b) The personnel department shall consist of a personnel board and a personnel director. The personnel board shall consist of five members. Three members shall be appointed for a term of six years each as follows: One to be appointed by a joint appointee of the probate judge and the sheriff of the county; one to be appointed by the county commission; and one to be appointed as a joint appointee of the county tax assessor and the county tax collector; however, the terms for the above three named initial appointees shall be staggered. For the first appointments the joint appointee of the probate judge and the sheriff of the county shall be for two years; the first appointee by the county commission shall be for a term of four years; and the first joint appointee by the county tax assessor and county tax collector shall be for six years. The other two members of the board shall be appointed for one year terms. One of the additional members shall be appointed annually by the President of the Etowah County Chamber of Commerce; and one member shall be appointed annually by the President of the Etowah County Labor Council.

(c) The members of the board shall be qualified electors of the county. No person shall be appointed to the board who holds any salaried public office or employment with the county, nor shall any member, while a member of the board or for a period of one year after he or she has ceased to be a member, be eligible for appointment to any salaried office or employment in the service of the county or any county elective office.

(d)The board shall hold one regular meeting in October of each year and such special meetings as are needed to conduct the business of the board. The members of the board shall receive twenty-five dollars ($25) per diem for each meeting of the board they attend. The board shall not meet in excess of 30 days per year; provided, however, that the time consumed by the personnel board in hearings conducted under subsection (b) of Section 45-28-121.08 shall not be counted as a part of the 30 days. For regular meetings of the board or special hearings or meetings of the board relating to a pending disciplinary action, each member shall receive sixty dollars ($60) per diem, not to exceed one hundred eighty dollars ($180) per month paid from the county treasury, and the chair shall receive seventy-five dollars ($75) per diem, not to exceed two hundred twenty-five dollars ($225) per month paid from the county treasury."
