Supervisors pass budget

Posted: Wednesday, Jun 25th, 2014

SANTA CRUZ COUNTY — After a week of negotiations and six months of work by county officials, the Santa Cruz County Board of Supervisors Tuesday approved the budget for 2014-15, a $639 million package that among other things calls for $450,000 to hire three new assistant district attorneys and will allow the Sheriff’s Office to bring seven deputies back to patrol duties.

Supervisor John Leopold said the budget cycle was his sixth on the board, and that it shows the economy that is slowly recovering from the economic recession.

“This is the first one where we haven’t had layoffs and we haven’t asked for cuts for departments,” he said. “It’s the beginning of crawling out of a hole that’s been pretty deep.”
