County Continues Budget Hearings

By Mario Conde

The County Board of Supervisors continued its budget hearings Tuesday in order to approve its new budget soon.

The Board of Supervisors continues looking at their proposed budget and also looking at possible augmentations for some departments. CEO Ralph Cordova said they started working on this budget ever since Governor Jerry Brown sign the budget passed by the California legislature on June 15. The Governor signed a budget that includes restructuring the state’s welfare program, CalWorks. The bill would reduce the time most Californians can receive welfare from four years to two, with several exceptions.
