Comm. Arámburo thanked those CBOs who were present and also thanked Lonnie Holmes and John Knox for the work in putting together the report. She further commented that these were difficult times as the Dept tries to move forward with the CBOs, in the face of other detractors who continue to presume that the Dept works exclusive of, and at odds with the community. She thanked the agencies for their hard work and emphasized that it is critical for them to speak out to the Bd of Supes in support of the continuing joint work represented by these contracts. Finally, Comm. Arámburo explained that the language of the recommendation had changed to specify that the amounts recommended were "up to a maximum of", given the current flux of the Dept’s budget review process.
Comm. Arámburo stated that from the report it appears that service levels are up and recidivism is down, and there were no significant deficiencies noted by Dept staff.
