Public comment on any matter within the subject matter jurisdiction of the Juvenile Probation Commission, that is not on this meeting’s agenda.

Mercedes H. Bran raised the issue of irregularities in the Annual Salary Ordinance (ASO, which details the total budgeted positions in the Dept –and City en total). She said that 5 positions added back by the Bd of Supes in July are not reflected in the ASO. Those positions are:  Sr Supervising Probation Officer, a counselor, a Sr Counselor, Principal Personnel Analyst, Secretary.  She said that if this had been done in July then there shouldn’t have been any layoffs of those individuals. Additionally, there are positions that were eliminated last year, which are still reflected in this Dept’s budget.  She said that having this discrepancy holds up the entire City’s ability to offer their “3+3” retirement.

She also reiterated her opinion that whoever the Commission chooses needs to know the City and the needs of the people in those communities impacted and have a rapport with them.

James Amerson (not clearly audible), a 30 yr resident of BVHP spoke in support of L. Holmes for the position of Chief. He reviewed some of the good work Holmes has done for the community and its youth.
