Supervisors Approve $600 Million County Budget

The Shasta County Board of Supervisors passed a budget last week totaling more than 600 Million Dollars. The budget included full funding for a dedicated Marijuana Eradication Team. The board also voted to transfer $10 Million from the General Fund to the Jail Capital Expenditure Fund. Retiring Shasta County Public Works Director Pat Minturn is now serving as County Executive Officer until a replacement can be found for Matt Pontes. A recruitment process will begin soon. Meanwhile, Pontes has secured a job with Sierra Pacific Industries. At Tuesday’s Board of Supervisors meeting, a representative of Norcal Outreach Project will make a presentation and will ask the board to approve a proclamation to designate June as “LGBTQIA+ Pride Month”
