Sacramento County Sees Unexpected Bump in Revenue

Sacramento County Sees Unexpected Bump in Revenue
Posted March 26th, 2014 @ 6:43am

Sacramento County has seen an unexpceted bump in revenue, but it's already been called for.

This was unanticipated. A midyear budget review from staffers found property taxes and vehicle license fees outpacing projections, leading to about a $4 million slush fund.

Supervisors say the surprise was a welcome one but, unfortunately, all of the cash has already been spent. 

Inmate healthcare costs are up nearly $3 million because of realignment, and longer sentences are leading to larger bills.

That led to quite a bit of frustration at a recent meeting.

The rest of the money will make-up federal cuts to juvenile probation and be used to clear up a backlog at CPS.
