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 2020 Budget Process is now scheduled. Departments and Offices are set to present their 2020 requests to the Budget Review Committee - 9 Members. These public meetings will be held in the Commissioners' Chambers inside the County Administration Building. The first public meeting is scheduled for September 9th, 2019.

Town Hall meetings will be held in each district and will focus on the 2020 Budget Process. This is an opportunity to address the Board and other department officials about current budget requests and/or challenges related to the 2020 Budget. Times and locations are available on this page.  

Supporting documents for all budget requests can be found in the area below prior to the meeting dates.
