This legislation changes the current amount for juvenile court judgeship grants-to-counties funding.  The grant increases from $85,000 to $100,000 per circuit, with an additional funding for circuits with four or more superior court judgeships, the grant will include $25,000 per superior court judgeship over four. For example a circuit with nine superior court judgeships would receive $225,000 per year for that circuit.

2017/02/10 - Report Compensation General County Government Personnel/Employment Todd Edwards
This legislation mandates that all counties implement a sick-time policy and provide at least 56 hours of paid sick leave per year to their employees.  Paid sick leave shall accrue at the rate of one hour of paid sick leave for every 30 hours worked.  The bill places several other requirements on these sick leave policies.  While ACCG has no issue with whatever sick leave the state may elect to provide its employees, we believe that counties are best apt to make their own personnel decisions.

Mandate Public Safety and Courts Training

This legislation provides an additional $200 per month supplement to be paid by the county for superior court clerks who complete voluntary training with the Carl Vinson Institute of Government and become a "certified superior court clerk".  Clerk's are mandated to complete this training to become a "certified superior court clerk" upon election under current law that has been in effect since 1998.  All training and reasonable travel expenses are currently the responsibility of the county.  Essentially this is a $200 per month salary increase for superior court clerks.
