Supes to consider restoring Health Department funding

Nearly $8 million in funding to restore Department of Public Health positions again goes before the Board of Supervisors Tuesday.

The money was slated to be cut from the current fiscal year budget, but because of last week’s report projecting a $522.2 million deficit next fiscal year, the funding was spared.

Cutting that amount affects potential layoffs, reassignments or salary reductions for more than 500 city employees. Supervisor Chris Daly has been spearheading a movement to save the positions.
