San Mateo County Board of Supervisors OKs $2.2 billion budget plan
September 19, 2013, 05:00 AM Daily Journal staff report

The San Mateo County Board of Supervisors adopted a $2.2 billion spending plan yesterday for fiscal year 2013-14 after signing off on another $6.9 million in appropriations on the last of three days of budget hearings.

This year’s budget is an increase over last year’s by more than $288 million. The board also approved a tentative budget at about $1.93 billion for FY 2014-15 as the county has started to look at its budget in two-year cycles for the first time.

Yesterday, the board approved $5 million in spending to plan and design the replacement of the Cordilleras Mental Health Facility in Redwood City.

It also signed off on about $1.2 million in final Measure A appropriations to fund the construction of two libraries in South San Francisco and Daly City at a cost of about $500,000 and to also fund emergency housing assistance at a cost of about $385,000.

Measure A funds will also go toward hiring a consultant to study planning and building fees at a cost of $100,000 as the board also approved a $100,000 appropriation for the Parks Foundation.

The final bit of Measure A funds, which total about $64 million annually, was pledged to the nonprofit agency Community Overcoming Relationship Abuse for legal expenses in the amount of $75,000.

The board considered 22 requests for Measure A funding, which voters approved in November, over several months of presentations. Seton Medical Center will receive $11.5 million for seismic upgrades and the San Mateo County Transit District will receive $10 million in Measure A funds for the next years.

The county now has 5,300 employees.

County Manager John Maltbie released a $2.1 billion budget in late August that included no Measure A funding but now, with it added and other adjustments made, the revised total is up by about $79 million for FY 2013-14.
