The power, duties and responsibilities of this Board are to devise, publish and amend or rescind detailed implementing personnel regulations as necessary to accomplish the purposes and intent of this division, subject to approval by the county manager and board of commissioners. Said personnel regulations or amendments shall become effective and have the force and effect of law upon their being approved and the personnel director shall then have the authority to carry out their provisions. In the administration of this division, appointing authorities and employees are enjoined to comply with the provisions of such personnel regulations; to be responsible for the oversight and policy direction of a countywide merit system of public employment and administration, conducted and directed by a personnel director who is supervised by the county manager; to recommend personnel policies and to require the enforcement, implementation and observance of this division, as set forth more fully in the detailed personnel regulations promulgated under the authority provided herein; to conduct hearings and investigations, render decisions, and order execution of those decisions on proper cases brought before the personnel board; to submit appropriate recommendations to the county manager and the board of commissioners concerning new or revised position classifications, salary ranges, salary rates and schedules, compensation plans and other similar documents, policies and procedures relating to the business of the board; to represent the public interest in the improvement of personnel administration in the county service; to advise the county manager and the board of commissioners concerning personnel matters; to publish an annual report as of December 31 of each year covering county personnel administration and operations; and to take other necessary lawful actions consistent with the purposes and intent of this division.
