Health officials today will ask the Board of Supervisors to approve Ventura County's portion of a $12-million statewide tuberculosis-prevention package. If the plan is approved, the Health Care Agency would receive $53,000 to spend on screening, tracking and treating people with tuberculosis, county Health Officer Larry Dodds said. "Our biggest problem is follow-up therapy," Dodds said. "This would help us get the personnel to make sure people take their medicine."

Ventura County's largest water wholesaler is leading an effort to reclaim nearly $6 million that it says was illegally taken from public agencies in the county to help balance the state budget. Other local agencies are expected to join Calleguas Municipal Water District in a precedent-setting lawsuit that seeks to force state officials to return property tax money lost during state budget cuts in September.

The Ventura County supervisors on Tuesday agreed to move forward with plans to tax most county homeowners $110 next year to help finance Fire Department services. Without the tax, county Fire Department officials said they would be forced to close nine fire stations, lay off up to 200 employees and decimate paramedic and firefighting efforts to offset a state funding cut of $20 million--nearly 40% of the department's budget.

A special unit of the Ventura County district attorney's office will begin seeking out and prosecuting bogus workers' compensation claims after county supervisors on Tuesday approved a controversial plan to use private contributions to pay for the effort. Dist. Atty. Michael D. Bradbury, who earlier this year established a fund to receive contributions from local businesses to pay for such prosecutions, said Tuesday he will start the 12-month pilot program by the end of May.
