Orange County CEO Tom Mauk may kick in more toward his pension, highlighting this week’s public meeting agendas around the county.
If supervisors approve the agreement, Mauk will pay 100 percent of his employee contribution toward his pension. The change would mean Mauk would pitch in an extra $900 per pay period, according to a staff report.
Controversy surrounding the compensation of the county’s executives and managers has been in the headlines since May, when the county’s performance auditor issued a scathing report on the merit bonus program. He concluded that the executive bonuses were de facto salary hikes, because they were given to virtually every manager.
Last week, a Voice of OC story revealed that county managers were quietly given a pay raise last month under the controversial “Pay 4 Performance” program.
Here’s a rundown of this week’s meeting agendas:
