CAPE members in all six county units voted overwhelmingly to ratify the salary contract agreements approved by bargaining unit representatives earlier this year. The results of the ratification votes will be reported next to County representatives, triggering an approval vote by the County Board of Supervisors at an upcoming meeting.

Recent efforts by CAPE leaders has significantly curtailed the number of jobs contracted to outside agencies by County executives, mostly at the Department of Public Works, but also at other departments where maintaining institutional memory saves significant resources.

Several Appraiser Members have asked what would be the implementation date for the proposed new Appraiser classification and its new salary range if the CAPE Members whose classifications are in the Appraisers Unit vote to ratify their proposed successor Unit’s Memorandum of Understanding?

Dear CAPE Member:

An abundance of caution has led the CAPE Board of Directors to determine that revised ballots for the Board of Directors election will be sent to members as soon as possible.

The initial ballots mailed to CAPE members on 7/22/2019 contained errors that would have precluded an accurate election.
