Supervisors To Discuss Term Limits, Charter County Proposal At Tuesday’s Meeting

The Shasta County Board of Supervisors will hold their first regular meeting in several weeks Tuesday. Two items involve taking a position on county initiatives that are to appear on the ballot in March, and the discussion will require suspending the board’s rules prohibiting them from doing just that. One of the measures would establish term limits for the board, while the other would establish a charter government structure for the county. The charter’s only starting provision would be to allow the board to appoint a replacement for a vacated seat. that measure was introduced by Kevin Crye, who’s facing a recall vote in March. The term limits measure was introduced by Chris Kelstrom.

On Tuesday the Board of Supervisors will decide whether to make County Executive Officer David Rickert a more permanent employee. A 3 year contract would include an annual salary of $307,500, plus benefits and vehicle allowance. During a special meeting Monday at 9AM the board will try to hire a county counsel.
