||Changes the compensation of public administrators
HS/HCS/SCS/SB 542 - This act changes the compensation of
public administrators. Public Administrators in second, third
and fourth classification counties and the City of St. Louis
would be required to choose whether compensation would remain
based on fees or be a salary which would be determined by the
number of cases handled by the office. In the event the Public
Administrator for St. Louis elects to be a salaried employee, the
salary would be $65,000.
The compensation paid to a salaried Public Administrator
would be determined by the average number of cases handled over a
2 year period up to 39 cases. A Public Administrator with 40 or
more cases would be considered a full time employee of the county
and would be paid a salary based on the assessed valuation of the
county. Fees collected by a salaried Public Administrator would
be deposited in the County Treasury. In St. Louis City such fees
would be deposited in the City Treasury.
In Buchanan, Camden, Cape Girardeau, Cass, Cole, Franklin,
Jasper, and Platt Counties, public administrators who elect to
receive a fees rather than a salary would be eligible to join the
Missouri local government employees' retirement system.
Effective January 1, 2001, all salaried public
administrators will be considered "county officials". Any
full-time staff in the Office of the Public Administrator would
be considered county employees after January 1, 2001. The County
would be required to provide full time staff to a Public
Administrator with 50 or more cases.
