A two-part plan to address the county’s $300 million deferred maintenance backlog was approved by the supervisors this week. The first part will see an outside contractor analyze all aspects of county buildings and parks, from electrical systems to plumbing; the second part will use the findings to develop budget planning for the next 20 years. The $280,000 analysis, due in December, will be paid for out of the $1 million set aside for deferred maintenance. Fed up with the size of the backlog, Supervisor Peter Adam has proposed a ballot initiative to require the board to better maintain county-owned buildings, parks, and roads.
