$10-Million Budget Loss Expected to Cut Services

September 18, 2002|From Times Staff Reports

The county government is bracing for an additional $10-million budget cut, a loss that could result in the closure of health clinics and the slashing of social service programs for the area's neediest residents, officials said.

Preliminary estimates released Tuesday by County Executive Officer Johnny Johnston's office show the county could lose up to $10 million because of reduced funding in the state's recently passed budget.

Although precise figures won't be known for two weeks, county managers already are preparing to cut services for mentally ill adults, recipients of food stamps and oversight of children in protective custody because of suspected abuse or neglect.
