Stanislaus County Supervisors Cut Sheriff Department, Turlock Working on Budget Proposals

The Turlock City Council just decided on April 13, 2010 to have an ad hoc budget committee comprised of Mayor John Lazar and Councilman Ted Howze work on budget proposals that the entire City Council could consider on May 11, 2010.
A debate between Council Members, along with citizens, took place on whether or not the budget discussions should be public and not behind closed doors.
No real decision was made although the idea the public may attend, but not participate, seemed to be acceptable to most of the Council.
A decision was made to begin looking at the budget in a two-year cycle instead of year-to-year.
While the City of Turlock is deciding how to deal with the General Fund Budget deficit of $3 million to nearly $4.2 million and possibly cutting 27 to 38 General Fund positions, the Stanislaus County Board of Supervisors approved cutting 52 Sheriff employees and 25 library employees at Tuesday’s Board Meeting. The cuts also included eliminating vacant positions.
These cuts, and over 100 more expected job cuts by July, follow Stanislaus County employees agreeing to take a 5 percent pay cut over two years.
Stanislaus County Sheriff Adam Christianson advocated public safety as a number one priority, arguing that by the Sheriff Department taking the same 9 percent cut as other departments does not show priority.
Last year other departments were asked for 12 percent cuts while the Sheriff Department only took a 5 percent cut.
The Stanislaus County Board of Supervisors unanimously approved the cuts at the April 27, 2010 Stanislaus County Board of Supervisors Meeting.

  • PaulWatkins on How does a real estate agency work? "Hi Dans Andrew, I'm glad you have made the right decision because a real estate agency is a promising career. Real estate agency involves dealing with properties either for selling or purchasing. When a client comes to a real estate agency to sell a property, it is the estate agent's job to find a buyer. If the agent finds a buyer and closes the deal at a good price for both parties, the estate agent gets a 1% commission from both buyer and seller. This is how real estate agencies work, and estate agents earn."

  • dans on How to choose the right weight loss clinic? "A reputable weight loss clinic should preferably include counseling while being overseen by a doctor or other qualified medical expert. However, some weight-loss facilities allow clients to quickly obtain weight-loss medications and leave without providing a thorough medical history or seeking a physician's opinion. You should stay away from these types of locations because they're dangerous and probably won't result in long-term weight loss. Find a facility that focuses on the behavioral treatment or lifestyle counseling instead. They can provide you with the tools you need to make healthy decisions and advice on how to fit exercise into your daily schedule. Some of these tactics include keeping track of your meals and keeping a weekly workout log."
