The County Executive is recommending a total County budget of $4 billion, of which the General Fund share is $2.2 billion. The $273 million deficit applies to the General Fund, which supports services which do not have fully dedicated funding, such as the Sheriff, District Attorney, jails, hospitals and clinics, mental health, and public health to name a few. Funds for operations such as Parks and Roads and Airports are not included in the General Fund.

Factored into the coming year is the funding the County will receive from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, and the Santa Clara Valley Medical Center (SCVMC Transformation 2010.

Recommended reductions do not include reductions which may be required once the FY 2010 State budget is approved sometime in the summer.
