Manny Ruiz, SCC Supervisor, (Dist. #1), says despite continued economic challenges, the Santa Cruz County board of supervisors was able recently to fill some vacant positions. He says the majority of the positions are in the Sheriff’s department in connection with the new jail and juvenile detention complex opening in January, 2011. He says positions include adult detention officers and juvenile detention officers. Ruiz says a new contract to house Federal prisoners will cover the costs.
