A Resolution to Approve Budget Strategies Relating to Anticipated Fiscal Year 2003 and Fiscal Year 2004 State Revenue Reductions


Topic Description:

The Governor has indicated there is at least a $1.5 billion  revenue shortfall in the State's bi-annual budget which will have direct and indirect impacts on local jursidictions. A Board of Supervisors work session was held  on September 16, 2002, to review  this situation and discuss options to mitigate the impact of State revenue loss. As part of that review a number of proposed strategies were recommended in a draft resolution for the Board of Supervisors' consideration. After evaluation of these recommendations, the County Administrator was directed to reword the element related to a hiring freeze and schedule the revised resolution for consideration at the Boards' October  meeting. The revised language is a restatement of the current policy which directs that vacant positions can only be filled with the approval of County Administration.
