The county Board of Supervisors will consider authorizing a $130,000 study to look at county government's design, classification and salaries.
The board considered the study previously but directed staff to look at alternatives to reduce the price from an estimated $150,000.
The board meets in open session at 9:30 a.m. Tuesday in the County Administration Center, 940 W. Main St., El Centro.
A staff report states one alternative would be to hire a limited-term employee to perform the study at a cost of $211,000 over 24 months. A third alternative would be to use current personnel department staff at a cost of $206,000 over 18 months.
