(Betty Jo McNeece receiving Home transfer)…It began in 2013.
The County Board of Supervisors approved the transfer from Behavior Health to the Social Services Department. This week the Supervisors completed the transfer by approving the Child Care Workers at the Receiving Home be changed to Social Service Aides and Workers, and therefore integrating them into the merit system. The Board of Supervisors approved the new Social Service positions and deleted the Child Care Worker Positions. Ruth Duarte, a union representative, told the Board the transition would now give the employees an opportunity for movement within county positions.
