Board Of Supervisors To Hold Another In Series Of Budget Workshops
March 21, 2011
The Placer County Board of Supervisors will hold another budget workshop Tuesday as part of a drive to have a budget plan in place when the 2011-12 fiscal year starts July 1.
Tuesday’s workshop will include a summary of the budget challenges facing Placer County, including expected reductions in property tax revenue and potential impacts from the state budget next fiscal year.
A summary report prepared for board review says the county is facing a projected budget deficit of $2.8 million for 2011-12, but has approximately $30 million at risk because of state-funding reductions and increased county responsibilities being considered by Gov. Jerry Brown and the California Legislature in their budget deliberations.
During Tuesday’s workshop, board members will take a closer look at the budget challenges facing:
- Placer County fire protection services;
- The county Road Fund;
- The Community Development Resource Agency; and
- County public safety budgets.
On April 5, county staff will present the board a series of options for dealing with next year’s budget challenges.
The board is scheduled to review a proposed 2011-12 county budget in June so it can have a preliminary budget plan in place July 1. Board members will hold another series of workshops in August before adopting a final budget in September.
Tuesday’s board meeting will take place at 9 a.m. in the county Administrative Center at 175 Fulweiler Ave. in Auburn.
