The balanced budget takes place with the adoption of a budget for the following fiscal year. The fiscal year begins from July 1st of the year to June 30th of the following year. The Board of Supervisors may modify the budget year-round.
Each year, the County Administrative Officer proposes the Recommended Budget based on projected expenditures and revenues, and outlines the County Administrative Officer’s recommendations for funding levels for each department. The Board of Supervisors through its committees and public sessions, will review the County Administrative Officer’s recommendations, making revisions as they see fit. At the conclusion of the public hearings in June, the Board will adopt an Approved Budget which sets the funding levels for County departments for the following year. These approved budget amounts are published in a separate document, the Final Budget.
