The San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors is poised to direct county administrators to draft a ballot measure that would require voter approval for any proposed increases to county employee retirement benefits.

It comes amid a spate of proposed benefits cuts to county supervisors and other elected officials. Earlier this month, the board approved an ordinance that cuts their benefits by 40 percent. The ordinance goes before the board today for adoption.

In addition, Supervisors Neil Derry and Janice Rutherford are proposing an ordinance that would further expand benefits cuts to the county’s other elected officials. The board is expected to discuss the proposed ordinance today and recommend that county administrators and staff further research the item.
