Lassen Deputies Claim $10,000 Overtime
April 7, 1962

The Lassen County Board of Supervisors will meet tonight to decide what to do about the claims of two sheriff’s deputies for more than $10,000 in overtime pay.

The two deputies resigned, effective April 30, after the supervisors adopted an amendment to the county salary ordinance curtailing high compensatory payoffs when employees quit. The amendment was made effective May 2.

Two other deputies with 400 hours accumulated overtime also threatened to resign.

The supervisors passed the amendment after two deputies stepped down. One collected $600 and the other got $879 for accumulated overtime.

Complicating the supervisors’ problem in the present instance is a lack of funds to pay new claims. James E. Pardee, county council, has advised the board it is legally obligated to meet them.
