Tuesday, July 28, 2015 — Memorandums of Understanding were approved for three county units and will allow the implementation of salary and benefit increases for three bargaining units within the county.

They’re three-year agreements, They include salary increases to immediately be implemented at 2.5 percent in one year, another 2 percent in the second year and in the third year of the contract, 3 percent,” said county administrative officer Richard Egan during a July 14 meeting of the Lassen County Board of Supervisors.
