Supervisors approve 2010-2011 county budget

 The following release came through from the county press office.

Santa Ana, CA — The Orange County Board of Supervisors today approved a $5.5 billion dollar budget for Fiscal Year 2010-11.

The new budget includes 36 fewer employee positions than in FY 09-10, continuing a trend that has resulted in a decrease of more than 1,000 County employee positions since FY 07-08. In recognition of the impact of the continuing economic downturn on the County, the Board of Supervisors also extended through December 16, 2010 a resolution authorizing elected officials to contribute five percent of their salary to the County and extended a 5% pay reduction for County executive managers.

The adopted County budget demonstrates the Board’s continued commitment to the safety and welfare of County residents while prudently using financial reserves to preserve essential County services. County officials are carefully monitoring progress toward agreement on a State budget that could dramatically impact many existing County programs.

The new County budget takes effect July 1, 2010.

    This budget was all smoke and mirrors. I presented information to the CEO/BOS prior to the adoption to the budget, which showed that the Public Administrator/Public Guardian was going to reduce his budget by eliminating his deputized staff from 27 to 23. The kicker is that he only has 17 deputies! This is only one example. They stated that they only had 3 managers when in fact they have approximately 10. Moorlach’s office verified the information and met with the CEO prior to the straw votes – but this budget was passed without comments. Gone are the days of honesty and integrity from our elected officials. Very sad.
