GRAND JURY

The Grand Jury is an independent body under the jurisdiction of the courts with primary responsibilities to perform an oversight function for local governments, initiate investigations, serve as ombudsman for citizens, and publish investigative findings and recommendations to improve governmental operations. According to Sections 25253 and 27100 of the Government Code, all County funds and Special District funds under the Board of Supervisors are subject to annual audit by the Grand Jury. The Auditor-Controller-Treasurer-Tax Collector�s budget provides for a contract with an independent audit service for this purpose. The 2019-20 recommended budget includes reimbursement to members of the Grand Jury for meetings attended and mileage. Jurors are reimbursed $15 per meeting, a maximum of two meetings per week, and receive the same mileage reimbursement received by County employees for each mile actually traveled as a Grand Juror. Funds to allow Grand Jurors to attend the California Grand Jury Association�s training seminar are included in the recommendation.
