The Administrative Policies and Procedures manual of Josephine County includes those policies which have county-wide application. These have been established by the Board of County Commissioners upon recommendation of the Administrative Steering Committee, after review of Department Heads and Elected Officials, and contain summary statements of administrative policy.
The purpose of these policies is to serve as a guide for the employer/employee relationship. The personnel policy manual contains general employment requirements and information; it is not intended to be comprehensive or to address all the possible applications of, or exceptions to, the general policies and procedures described.
Oregon Government Ethics law addresses a wide range of actions, situations or events which a public official may encounter while serving a state or local government. This guide provides a discussion of the provisions that apply to circumstances that most public officials may encounter.
