A nearly $1 million budget shortfall in the Cannabis Division that has been haunting county supervisors’ agendas for months was shored up last week with a contribution and an advance from the general fund.

The item first started appearing before the start of the new year in agendas and meetings in the run up to the midyear budget review — which The Journal has been told by Interim County Administrative Officer Elizabeth Hamilton will not happen this year due to county staffing capacity. It was repeatedly discussed and continued to later meetings until the most recent March 21 meeting where a decision was made.
