Supplements paid to county employees, like Assistant District Attorneys are also recommended to be cut by 4.6% (equivalent to 12 unpaid holidays).
The committee also voted to request all Judges and Constitutional Officers to voluntarily reduce their salaries or county supplements the equivalent of 4.6% for fiscal year 2011 (the county cannot automatically cut those salaries per state law).
The unpaid holidays will save the county $1,264,301, but it won't balance the budget. $3.6 Million will still have to be pulled from reserves in order to balance the budget.
If judges and constitutional officers agree to the pay cuts, more savings will be realized.
