$192k annual payments for city’s new dump-truck

CDCR deputy leaving for Stockton administration job

Jon Ortiz  |  Sacramento Bee

Administrative Services has an annual operating budget of $178 million and nearly 2,100 staff that manage human resources and business services for the entire $10.7 billion state correctional system and its 61,000 employees. (more…)
