Office of Management and Budget

The budget office wears two hats. We are a service organization to help departments acquire the goods and services necessary to perform their jobs and assist citizens with MSBUs or municipal service benefit units; and a control organization to ensure all funds are spent properly and in accordance with the approved budget.

The budget office ensures that program managers, based on the availability of revenues, receive the resources needed to operate effectively and efficiently. The budget office is responsible for the development and monitoring of the annual operating and capital improvements budgets, fiscal policy analysis and special project research.

They also coordinate program evaluations and provide management consulting services as requested by the board, the county administrator and directors. Staff continuously reviews and streamlines the budget process.
