The Orange County Board of Supervisors will vote on a proposal for a slightly larger budget for its coming fiscal year.
That county’s general fund budget includes a 3 percent increase to $3 billion and includes 91 new staff positions from last year’s budget. The budget also includes approximately 2.5 percent job growth and a 5.5 percent increase in personal income in the coming year.
“External indicators for 2014 reflect that the local economy is experiencing a moderate recovery, trending more favorable when compared to state and national economies,” a staff report said.
A one-hour public budget preview will begin at 8 a.m. on Tuesday, June 10, followed by public budget hearings at 9:30 a.m. at the Hall of Administration Board Hearing Room, 333 W. Santa Ana Blvd., Santa Ana. The hearing will continue at 9:30 a.m. Wednesday, June 11.
