Major Withdrawal Scheduled

Sonora, CA — When it comes to the mid-year budget report at today’s Tuolumne County supervisorial meeting, CAO Craig Pedro will announce a major withdrawal from the contingency fund.

This morning the supervisors will touch on a number of topics before convening again this evening in Columbia for the fifth and final Five Year Strategic Plan public meeting.

Agenda items today include consideration of adopting the 2009/2010 Mid-Year Budget Report along with the associated budgetary adjustments, personnel changes and expenditure controls.

Due to a reduction in federal, state and local revenues CAO Craig Pedro will announce a withdrawal of $719,000 from the county’s contingency fund in order to avoid staff layoffs and a reduction in services.

Pedro will also present multi-year budgetary projections for the fiscal years through 2012/2013.

In addition there will be consideration of increasing the Transient Occupancy Tax (T.O.T.) from eight to 10 percent.

Public Works Director Peter Rei will seek approval of a tentative list of repaving projects that would be available if the Jobs for Main Street legislation passes the Senate and receives President Obama’s signature. According to Caltrans Tuolumne County would be eligible for approximately $2.8 million.

In other business there will be reconsideration of the county’s appeal of the Stanislaus National Forest Motorized Travel Management Decision.
