Budgets provide a plan for the orderly expenditure of public funds. The adoption of the budget is
the formal process for appropriating County funds. Individuals that pay taxes or fees to support
governmental services have the right to be heard regarding the budget. Before either final adoption
of a budget or an increase to an adopted budget, a public hearing is held where the public can make
comments before the Board of County Commissioners. The County is required to prepare a tentative
budget on or before November 1. The tentative budget is accompanied by a tentative budget message.
The County is required to adopt a final budget on or before December 31. Departments may transfer
funds within their budgets at any time. The Board of County Commissioners may transfer funds from
one department to another by resolution in an open and public meeting. Increases to budget
appropriations may only be made after appropriate public hearings. In accordance with State law,
all adopted budgets are required to be presented as balanced budgets.
