Juvenile hall budget cuts sought
Tuesday, May 20, 2014 — Lassen County staff is continuing to find ideas to reduce a $1.3 million the juvenile hall budget.
According to Lassen County administrative officer Richard Egan, several options are being looked at which will reduce the budget by $15,000. Those ideas are moving some of the juvenile hall staff into other areas of the probation department to create a reduction of a 3/4 Full Time Equivalent.
Staff is also looking at partnering with the Lassen County Jail in coordinating the control board during non-waking hours at juvenile hall to further reduce one to two full time equivalents.
