Budget & Finance

The Budget Division is responsible for the compilation and management of the annual County budget. The staff provides financial analysis and forecasting to the Board of Commissioners, the County Administrator, and all departments and elected offices. The County's short- and long-term debt programs are also managed in this division, which affords operating and capital funding for the County at the lowest possible cost. Our goal is to optimize these programs to deliver cost effective and efficient services to our customers.


The Budget Status Update is refreshed on a monthly basis and reported to the Board of Commissioners during their normal work study session on the 4th Wednesday of each month. 

The 2019 budget process is complete. Departments and Offices presented their 2019 requests to the Budget Review Committee - 9 Members. These public meetings were held in the Commissioners' Chambers inside the County Administration Building. The following link is a summary that highlights the 2019 Kitsap County Budget.
