Greg Lucero, SCC Manager, says Santa Cruz County’s budget for 2010-2011 is pegged at $75-million. He says new threats remain before the end of the year because state funding is shaky. He says when the State comes up short, it makes cuts and shifts some costs to Counties, such as transferring prisoners in State facilities back to jails in counties from which they came, forcing counties to cover the costs of their incarceration.
