The Alameda County Board of Supervisors on Friday approved a $3.5 billion budget for FY 2019-20 that is balanced and closes a $60.4 million funding gap without significant reductions to services or staff.

The Final Budget includes funding increases to community service providers, allows the County to continue building its financial reserves, and supports a workforce of nearly 9,900 employees. The Final Budget reflects the priorities outlined in the County’s long-term Strategic Vision, known as Vision 2026, by supporting efforts to address Countywide challenges such as homelessness, an affordable housing shortfall, and the need to maintain and improve aging infrastructure.
