The Board reserves the <br />right to modify the chart at any time without prior notice. <br />Budget Guidelines for Merit Increases <br />Each department will be provided a budgeted amount for merit increases calculated by multiplying the <br />number of active non-bargained employees, excluding hourly employees, by a set merit budget <br />percentage. The Board of County Commissioners will determine the merit budget percentage during the <br />annual budget process which is based upon a variety of factors, including current and projected budget <br />conditions, CPI, and historical averages. For 2011 the percentage has been set at 2.0%, and will be <br />available to those who are at the top of their range. <br />Individual merit increases will follow the merit increase chart. Each department must stay within their total <br />budgeted amount for merit increases. Any exceptions to this policy must be presented to the Board of <br />County Commissioners. <br />
