E-mail Print PDF

LAKEPORT, Calif. – The Board of Supervisors this week will consider the coming fiscal year's recommended budget and discuss whether to pursue a sales tax measure that would be dedicated to improving Clear Lake.

The meeting will begin at 9 a.m. Tuesday, June 19, in the board chambers on the first floor of the Lake County Courthouse, 255 N. Forbes St., Lakeport. TV8 will broadcast the meeting live.

In an untimed item, new interim County Administrative Officer Matt Perry will present to the board the proposed fiscal year 2012-13 Recommended Budget.

The budget is “structurally balanced and remains debt free,” Perry's report to the board explained.

Recommended appropriations total $185,711,200, up slightly from $185,202,064 for the 2011-12 fiscal year budget, Perry reported. Proposed general fund appropriations total $52,244,146, compared to $52,130,249 for the current year's general fund budget.

State law requires that the budget must be approved by June 30, and adopted no later than Oct. 2.

Perry reported that the actual adoption will take place later this summer. A budget hearing is scheduled for Aug. 28.
