	LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


   SB 649, as introduced, Berryhill. Local government: contracts:
special services.
   Existing law authorizes the board of supervisors to contract for
special services, on behalf of specified county entities, in
financial, economic, accounting, engineering, legal, medical,
therapeutic, administrative, architectural, airport or building
security matters, laundry services or linen services, as specified.
   This bill would make technical, nonsubstantive changes to this
provision.
   Vote: majority. Appropriation: no. Fiscal committee: no.
State-mandated local program: no.


THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  SECTION 1.  Section 31000 of the Government Code is amended to
read:
   31000.  The board of supervisors may contract for special services
on behalf of the following public entities: the county, any county
officer or department, or any district or court in the county. Such
contracts shall be with persons specially trained, experienced,
expert and competent to perform the special services. The special
services shall consist of services, advice, education or training for
such public entities or the employees thereof. The special services
shall be in financial, economic, accounting  (including
  , including  the preparation and issuance of
payroll checks or  warrants)   warrants  ,
engineering, legal, medical, therapeutic, administrative,
architectural, airport or building security matters, laundry services
or linen services. They may include maintenance or custodial matters
if the board finds that the site is remote from available county
employee resources and that the county's economic interests are
served by such a contract rather than by paying additional travel and
subsistence expenses to existing county employees. The board may pay
from any available funds such compensation as it deems proper for
these special services. The board of supervisors may, by ordinance,
direct the purchasing agent to enter into contracts authorized by
this section within the monetary limit specified in Section 25502.5
of the Government Code.
