TEHAMA COUNTY, Calif. – The Tehama County Board of Supervisors voted Tuesday to provide $125,000 stipends and up to 80 hours of paid administrative “stand-by” leave for some employees during the coronavirus pandemic.

Employees who provide direct essential services to the public may apply to the $125 stipend, if the plan is implemented. Employees may be assigned up to 80 hours stand-by leave with pay in April in order to provide a sustainable workforce.

Burt Bundy is the only supervisor who ended up voting “no,” saying the county employees should just be happy to have their jobs.

The other supervisors all voted to approve the payments, as long as the county uses a $3 million AB-109 reserve fund and other HR savings to pay for it.

The county’s goal was to make sure employees are available to keep essential county offices open during the pandemic.
