San Joaquin County administers six donated trusts dedicated to county park operations, but the Board of Supervisors would like to rely more on the interest collected from the trusts rather than spend the principal.

Supervisors approved a plan on Tuesday to reduce expenditures from the six trusts, but deferred a program to enhance park revenues until next year's budget is adopted in June.

    What should be questioned here is why SJ County is paying all of these positions exorbitant salaries. All seem to be OVER $70K per year with the last one $100K. What skills does one need to earn that type of money?

    And just what does the "Green Agenda" have to do with this story?

    Glad to see some cost cutting and fiscal responsibility. Now if we can keep it up in good times, and stop jumping on the Green Agenda bandwagon, we might survive!
