2013 Proposed Budget Now Online
|The 2013 Proposed Budget was presented to the Board of County Commissioners (BCC) at a Staff Briefing Session on Tuesday, Oct. 9. The proposed budget, compiled by the County Administrator and Budget staff, must be presented to the commissioners by Oct. 15 each year by statute. It will also be presented at a public hearing at 8 a.m. next Tuesday, Oct. 16. BCC hearings are held in Hearing Room One, on the first floor of the Administration and Courts Facility, 100 Jefferson County Parkway.
This is just one step in the annual budget development process. There already have been several working sessions with the commissioners to get the preliminary direction from them to start the budget process. Those were held beginning in May.
The BCC will have many budget meetings, including one with each county elected official and department, in the coming weeks. They are to discuss the departmental budgets before the budget is finalized in December. Last year the BCC had a total of 34 public meetings before the budget was adopted.
