Mid-June, the Sonoma County Board of Supervisors adopted a 1.78-billion-dollar budget for the next fiscal year. The new budget resulted in 14 million dollars in unfulfilled funding requests and cut nine county jobs of a staff of about 4,000. The county requested that the state cover the property tax loss from the 2017 wildfires, but that backfill was unavailable from Sacramento this year. KRCB’s Adia White talked with Chair of the board of supervisors, David Rabbitt about how the changes in the budget will affect Sonoma County residents.
