Within the next 60 days, Orange County plans to start spending an additional $20 million on children’s services by targeting nine ZIP codes with the highest rates of childhood poverty, juvenile crime, student homelessness, teen pregnancy and infant mortality.
The move, announced Tuesday by Mayor Jerry Demings, came as the county released the findings of an independent consultant, hired by the county for just under $150,000 to examine how best to spend the money.
