(a) If, at any time during a fiscal year, the county superintendent of schools concludes that the expenditures of a community college district in the territory within his or her jurisdiction are likely to exceed the anticipated income of the district for that fiscal year, he or she shall notify the district in writing of that conclusion, and may conduct a comprehensive review of the financial and budgetary conditions of the district.
(b) The superintendent shall report his or her findings and recommendations under this section to the governing board of the district, and may include recommendations of methods by which the budgeted expenditures for the balance of the fiscal year may be brought into balance with the revenue of the district. The report shall be made to the governing board at a public meeting of the governing board. The governing board shall, no later than 15 days after receipt of the report, notify the county superintendent of schools of its proposed actions on those recommendations.
