County Adopts Budget Focusing on
Jun. 26, 2018 | 5:07 PM
The County Board of Supervisors unanimously voted Tuesday to adopt a revised recommended budget for the fiscal year beginning July 1.
Tuesday’s action means the budget for the upcoming year will increase $484.5 million, or 8.4 percent, over the current year for a total of $6.27 billion.
Helping the homeless and those with substance abuse and mental health issues are among the areas seeing most significant increases under the balanced budget plan. The new budget also emphasizes breaking barriers for people leaving the criminal justice system, addresses the affordable housing crisis, the quality of life in neighborhoods and protects natural resources. The budget retains or improves current levels of service to the County’s residents.

The size, diversity, and strength of a local government’s tax base impact its ability to generate financial resources. Changing economic conditions - including changes in the real estate market - impact the county's revenue and workload, along with the strategies used to manage the public's resources. Changes in the real estate market directly impact the County's general purpose revenue, the Board of Supervisor's only source of discretionary spending.
