O.C. budget is cut by $60,000

June 11, 2008|Christian Berthelsen

After an all-day hearing on Orange County's proposed $6.6-billion budget for the coming fiscal year, county supervisors were poised to move forward with a spending plan that was little changed from the original proposal.

At the end of the day, during which county department heads presented their budgets and in a few cases asked for more than they were given, the net change to the budget was a reduction of $60,000 in spending but an additional four positions.

Some areas are slated to receive large increases in funding, such as an additional $3.1 million to double the number of psychiatric beds in the county to 26, but money to pay for that will come from elsewhere in the budget.

A final vote is scheduled for June 24.
