AUDITOR-CONTROLLER COMPLETES FIRST INDEPENDENT ECONOMIC ANALYSIS UNDER COUNTY COIN ORDINANCE
Public Invited to Workshop Monday June 8 at 2 p.m.
June 5, 2015 – The Orange County Auditor-Controller will release the first economic analysis/fiscal impact report under the new COIN Ordinance (Civic Openness in Negotiations) on Monday June 8. The opening report is prepared as part of labor negotiations with the Alliance of Orange County Workers (AOCW) which includes 409 individuals who work in airport maintenance, automotive mechanics, custodians, groundskeepers, laborers, park maintenance and power/landfill equipment managers. The intent is to provide negotiators with an objective analysis of the financial impact of the proposal on Orange County’s General Fund.
The public is invited to attend a workshop Monday June 8 at 2 p.m. in the Orange County Hall of Records, 12 Civic Center Plaza, Room 216 Santa Ana, CA 92701. Auditor-Controller Eric Woolery will present the report and answer questions regarding the methodology leading to the report’s findings. The report will also be available online at the Orange County Auditor-Controller’s website http://ac.ocgov.com.
In 2014, the County Board of Supervisors enacted the COIN ordinance which requires the County AuditorController to prepare an objective fiscal impact report for the initial offer and all subsequent offers/counter offers during employee union negotiations.
