Aug 31, 2022 12:00AM ● By Sacramento County News Release

SACRAMENTO COUNTY, CA (MPG) - The Sacramento County Board of Supervisors will begin Fiscal Year (FY) 2022-23 Revised Recommended Budget hearings on Wednesday, Sept. 7, at 9:30 a.m. in the Sacramento County Administration Building located at 700 H Street, Sacramento, 95814. If necessary, hearings will continue on Sept. 8 and 9 at the same time and location.

The hearing schedule, in order:

IHSS Public Authority Budget Deliberation and Approval; Introduction by the County Executive to the FY 2022-23 Revised Recommended Budget; Public Comment; Board Deliberation and Approval to Revisions of the Approved Recommended Budget

The numbers in the recommended budget change between June and September when the County receives new information, including the impact of the State Budget and updated revenue totals. Because of that new information, the Revised Recommended Budget comes back to the Board for review and adoption in September.

The Board of Supervisors approved the FY 2022-23 Recommended Budget on June 9. The $7.3 billion spending plan reflected substantial investments in new and enhanced programs based on the Board’s priorities and a survey of Sacramento residents. The budget included annual commitments of an additional $6.5 million to fund new programs and services addressing homelessness in the County; $10 million to procure an additional 156 beds annually for substance use disorder residential treatment; $7.5 million in Mental Health Services Act (MHSA) and Federal matching funds to fulfill permanent supportive housing commitments; and $20 million in one-time costs to fund pavement maintenance and road rehabilitation in the unincorporated County, among others. 

Members of the public may attend the hearings and be heard on any item in the budget, either publicly, over the phone or through written comments. The budget hearings will also be telecast live on Metro Cable 14 and on
