Upon notifying the board of county commissioners, any appointing authority of a county office, department, commission, board, or body, or of a common pleas court, county court, or county-operated municipal court as defined in section 1901.03 of the Revised Code, may establish a program to recognize outstanding employee performance. The program may include, but is not limited to, cash awards, additional paid leave, or other additional benefits as the appointing authority considers appropriate, so long as the costs of the program do not exceed the total amount of compensation fixed by the board of county commissioners for the office, department, commission, board, or body or for the common pleas court, county court, or county-operated municipal court.
