The Office of Management & Budget publishes the Final Budget in the fall of each year to summarize and explain the Board of County Commissioners' operating budget by organization, fund and function. Many helpful tables and charts throughout the Final Budget summarize the County's prior year revenues and expenditures, as well as the estimated figures for the applicable fiscal year.
