    Despite the current economic situation, Jefferson County's finances are healthy overall with strong fund balance reserves, low debt and an excellent credit rating. The county budget is organized by fund. Each one has a specific purpose and, in some instances, a restriction on how the money in the funds may be used.

    • Public Safety (28 percent)
    • Health and Human Services (16 percent)
    • Development and Transportation (16 percent)
    • Culture and Recreation (16 percent)
    • Internal Services (16 percent)
      • Includes IT, Facilities, Fleet, etc.
