Parks & Recreation Tax-Payer Transparency Tool

The Cost Benefit Analysis (CBA) was developed to identify all costs and revenues associated with individual facilities and programs.  It is the Department's primary tool for transparency in government.

Our department has several sources of funding. The General Fund pays for Regional Parks, which include beaches, boat ramps, stadiums, Conservation 20/20, and Extension Services. The Unincorporated MSTU fund pays for Community Parks, Community Centers, Recreation Centers, Community Pools, and Programs. Additional funding comes from tourism-related taxes, grants and other sponsorship.
