The San Diego County Board of Supervisors voted to eliminate 27 county positions to help offset a $90 million decrease in property and sales tax revenues.
The Health and Human Services Agency Department will lose 18 jobs, primarily in adult protective services. Nine positions, mainly building inspectors will be eliminated from the Department of Planning and Land Use.
The cuts will save the county about $2.2 million.
Board of Supervisors Chairwoman Dianne Jacob will deliver the annual state of the county address on Wednesday night. She is expected to focus on the county's financial troubles.
Jacob will deliver her address at Cuyamaca College at 6 p.m.
