Supervisors appoint interim Mammoth Fire District Admin, approve employee bonus

FLORENCE – At the December 19 meeting of the Pinal County Board of Supervisors, the Board unanimously approved the appointment of Fred “Rick” Sanchez, Jr. to become the interim Administrator for the Mammoth Fire District.

Sanchez was one of three candidates who submitted to be considered for the position.

“All three candidates who applied for the position were qualified to do the job,” Supervisor Pete Rios said. “This is a first step in creating an elected fire board for the district.”
There will be an election to select members of the Mammoth Fire Board in May 2013.
The other two Mammoth residents to submit their names were: Aaron H. Baldwin and Rita S. Burrola.
The Board also approved a one-time lump sum payment equal to 2.5% of a full-time employee’s pay.
The pay plan, as introduced by Supervisor Pete Rios, will be paid to all full-time employees who were in full-time paid status on Dec. 19, 2012. Part-time employees will receive a one-time payment of $100 from which taxes must also be deducted, per IRS regulations.
This does not change an employee’s base pay and it should not be construed as a raise. Sufficient budget capacity exists to offer this one-time payment in recognition of all the hard work and difficult times our employees have endured.
In previous meetings, the Supervisors have discussed cost-of-living increases, bonuses, merit increases and other ways to reward employees for doing more with less and, in many cases, taking on the work of other staff members after program and budget cuts. Today’s measure was successful when Rios’ plan gained the support of David Snider.
