A $1.4-billion San Diego County budget unveiled Thursday includes $109 million for the Sheriff's Department--more than a 20% increase--but nonetheless falls far short of the spending increase sought by Sheriff John Duffy. In his proposal, County Chief Administrative Officer Norman Hickey recommended that the department's budget be increased by $18,822,493 for the fiscal year starting July 1. That amount includes money for the salaries of 221 more employees, a new psychiatric unit at the women's County Jail at Las Colinas in Santee and about $4 million for operating the newly expanded Vista jail, which is scheduled to open July 1. Duffy had wanted an increase of $31 million.

Just hours after the financially strapped San Diego County Psychiatric Hospital stopped admitting patients this week, a former patient--apparently determined to continue his treatment--scrambled over a 20-foot hospital wall, attacked two nurses with a pipe and pleaded with hospital staff to be readmitted, authorities confirmed Thursday. "He said, 'I want to go to the hospital. Don't send me to jail.'

As Butte County struggled through Friday on the brink of bankruptcy, state and local officials elsewhere warned that the county's threatened financial collapse is symptomatic of money problems facing counties throughout California. "Butte is just at the head of the line. At least a half-dozen other counties are just a step behind, with more behind them," said Assemblyman Stan Statham (R-Oak Run), who represents the county in the Legislature. A new report by the County Supervisors Assn.

Orange County released its proposed 2000-01 budget Monday with a new twist: It is the first time officials will be held responsible for meeting set goals, with the threat of losing future funding increases if they aren't met. Orange County joins at least three other California counties--Santa Clara, Santa Barbara and San Diego--in including a series of performance indicators within government budgets for each department to meet.

A few thousand dollars may not seem like much in a San Diego County budget that approaches $2 billion. But at a time when the cash-strapped county is cutting back on everything from benefits to the poor to paid vacations for staff, every dime counts. Or at least it should.

Chief Administrative Officer Norman Hickey unveiled a $1.2-billion San Diego County budget Wednesday for 1987-88 and, despite the record spending request, expressed concern about the county's ability to meet the residents' needs. The proposed budget reflects a 12.3% increase, or $127 million, over the current one, and Hickey said it will be a struggle to balance spending with revenues, as required by law.

San Diego County's budget, balanced this month after painful cutbacks in mental health, probation and custodial services, suddenly faces another shortfall of about $14 million, county administrators said Monday. The latest dose of red ink probably will not produce further program reductions but could force more staff cuts or a freeze on automobile and other equipment purchases, officials acknowledged.
