(County Budget process underway)…The Board of Supervisors began the process Tuesday morning.
They planned to spend all afternoon discussing the spending plan for this fiscal year. Presentations were scheduled from the Clerk-Recorders office, Probation and Corrections, Sheriff-Coroner and The District Attorney. The presentations are like wish lists. Items the Departments would like for the next fiscal year. The CEO’s financial team, Auditor-Controller, Treasurer and the Supervisors then make adjustments as to what the county can afford. The Budget hearings are expected to continue until all Departments are heard. A balanced budget will be presented to the Supervisors in September or early October.
