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
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.
