County officials expect the general fund budget to come in $4.6 million ahead of projections at the end of the fiscal year in June 2013.

Still, the projected budget gap for the next fiscal year is $12.4 million. Looking down the road, how to fund ongoing operating expenses at the new North County jail when it opens in 2017-2018 remains a primary concern to the Board of Supervisors.
