FAIRFIELD — Local public safety officials on Wednesday will discuss asking the Solano County Board of Supervisors to spend $14.5 million in state realignment money next fiscal year.
The county Community Corrections Partnership will meet at 2 p.m. in Conference Room A at the County Events Center, 601 Texas St. Its mission is to address issues arising from the state’s move to turn over responsibility for some felons from the state prison and parole systems to counties.
That proposed $14.5 million in spending for the 2014-15 fiscal year beginning in July would go to the District Attorney’s Office, Public Defender’s Office, Sheriff’s Office, Alternate Public Defender, Probation Department and Health and Social Services.
Solano County has $15.9 million in state realignment money available for next fiscal year, though this includes $5.9 million in unspent money from previous years, a county report said. The estimated state allocation to the county for next fiscal year is $10 million.
