              2.   Supervisors Armenta and Johnsen addressed the Board concerning salaries and benefits for In-Home Supportive Services workers.  Upon their request, the Board referred, through the County Administrative Office, to the Department of Social Services, the matter of the IHSS coverage in the following areas:  1) the cost of potential raises; 2) cost of health insurance; 3) the governance issue; and 4) the issue regarding policy on hourly assignments.  Staff is directed to report back to this Board as an agenda item, by the end of January, 2003.  The Board requested that the report also include the cost of realignment dollars that are used and to trace the cash flow of those dollars and reimbursement of those sub-dollars in later budget cycles, as well as the impact of potential raises in salaries over a three-year period of time, and to include a cash flow analysis of said policy.  The report back will also include the implication of the current governance model and possible realignment of that model based on the dollars, cost, and accountability of the current governance structure.
