County to confront $90 million gap

The proposed budget Sacramento County released Friday calls for major cuts to close a $90 million gap.

At least 320 employee positions are proposed for cuts. It’s unclear how many of these position cuts may translate to layoffs.

Interim County Executive Officer Steven Szalay’s proposed budget serves as a series of suggestions to the Board of Supervisors, which will hold votes and make decisions on the budget.

“Approval of this recommended budget, with unavoidable reductions, is an important step to continue recovery from our fiscal crisis and will improve the budget picture for next year and beyond,” Szalay wrote in a document dated for the Board of Supervisors’ June 6 budget hearing.

According to Szalay’s document, the 320 positions figure does not include positions in the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department and the District Attorney’s office. There may be additional positions cut from those departments.

The budget documents are now online.

Budget hearings start June 6 at the Sacramento County Administration Building, 700 H St.
