As County Supervisor, it is my responsibility to be a good steward of your tax dollars and ensure reliable service. Earlier this week, I voted to reduce $7 million in taxpayer subsidies for Development Services and focus those savings on infrastructure and services.
Since the 2008 recession, the County had implemented several stimulus measures to preserve the foundations of our local economy. Given recent years of sustainable economic growth, the Board of Supervisors decided on an 18-month phase out of taxpayer subsidies for development. The County has worked with stakeholders on a comprehensive agreement for them to cover their own costs, modernize the OC Public Works department with a new technology program, and further permit streamlining initiatives. These efforts will greatly enhance service for all residents and businesses in the county.
I would like to thank OC Public Works for working with stakeholders in and around Orange County.
