Los Angeles County chief executive officer William T. Fujioka earlier this week proposed a $21.9 billion all-funds budget that cuts spending by 2.6%.

The spending plan includes $1.5 billion of capital spending, a decrease of $183.8 million. Just $185.2 million of the spending will be financed with long- or short-term borrowing — 70% will be paid from the general fund. The capital budget includes $523 million for public safety projects, including renovation of the Men’s Central Jail.
