a. Discussion: End of year report 2022
Member Thompson discussed in 2019, Fulton County was about to lose state funding if a Sexual Harassment Policy was not immediately enacted.
Member Thompson discussed the Fulton County policy manual was 10 years old and was out of date. The P&L committee worked hard to change and update the personnel policy manual. In 2021, the Personnel Policy Manual was reviewed by the legal advisors from the county’s risk management insurance and suggested changes to the Personnel Policy Manual. The P&L committee implemented the suggested changes to the Personnel Policy Manual.
In 2022, the P&L Committee worked on some difficult policies and updated the holiday, vacation, sick leave, retiree health insurance, Covid and procurement card policies.
Member Thompson stated in the past the P&L Committee may have been viewed as a committee that approved appointments, but with the diligence of the current committee Members Beck, Duquenne, McCullum and Platt, the committee has raised the stakes for future committee members.
Member Thompson is hopeful the next Fulton County Board will consider a county manager for Human Resources to administer these policies.
