The annual budget serves as the foundation of the County’s financial planning and control.  All County departments submit appropriation requests to the Fiscal Management department on or about December 1st each year.  The budget committee uses the departmental requests as a starting point for developing a proposed budget.  After extensive budget preparation, citizen engagement, and a Board review process that includes multiple work sessions and a public hearing, the Board of Supervisors adopts the annual budget.
