County hospital, public safety agencies facing yearend shortfalls
Valley News

The Board of Supervisors agreed today to allocate an additional $10 million in support of the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department and another $2 million for the county fire department to help the agencies overcome deficits lingering on their books as the fiscal year winds down.

The board voted unanimously to make the adjustments, without comment, during a block motion approving a number of items on its policy agenda.

A third-quarter update on the 2013-14 budget was submitted by the county Executive Office, which indicated most agencies will end the current fiscal year in the black, with the exception of the two public safety agencies and the county hospital.
