Budget Timeline

The yearly budget process is always a lot of work, but it’s even more difficult when the county is facing a $2.3M deficit compared to 2020.  The regularly scheduled BOCC meeting on September 15 included a work session led by Budget and Finance Director Janae Stanworth and lasted about 2 hours. Stanworth asked the Commissioners for direction on certain items in order for her prepare the proposed budget which is due Oct 15. Many possibilities were discussed, including combining/merging departments and the cutting of several positions to save money overall. The conversation was heavily focused on how to potentially merge the Planning/GIS, Building, Economic Development, Emergency Management, and Natural Resources Departments, and how that would look for budget savings. Discussion included what any new/merged positions would entail and what their job duties and titles would be.  “We’re just going to have to learn to do more with less,” stated Commissioner Moyer on Tuesday.  It’s still unclear whether the Sales and Use Tax position will be combined into another department and on what timeline, and whether Emergency Management will be full or part-time. Many more discussions will be had over the next several weeks to discuss these and every other section of the budget. Sign up for meeting and workshop alerts at 
The following chart explains the lengthy budget process in detail. The budget adoption is in December.
