Tuesdays meeting of the San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors will be a milestone.

County supes are set to relinquish their roles as ‘supervisors’ and take a back seat to soon to be named chief executive office Greg Devereaux.

A titled insiders say Devereaux insisted upon when he took the job.

Though the title change is no big deal, what accompanies the action is stunning.

County supervisors will basically assume a “city council” like posture, and agree by ordinance not to interfere or intervene in county operations.

They will only have the power to make inquiry.

A concept which seems at odds with the county charter.

What begs the question here is, if this is to be the case, then why do supervisors need full-time treatment and large staffs?

I’m not saying Devereaux isn’t qualified to run the county. However it’s questionable that supervisors want nothing to do with county operations but still want the pay and perks.
