The Board will hear a report from the County Administrator’s Office regarding the current fiscal year budget projections. One of the key principles of long-term financial stability is the practice of matching one-time revenues with one-time expenses. The County invests one-time resources in road infrastructure, paying down unfunded retiree liabilities and maintaining adequate fiscal reserves. As a result of greater-than-anticipated one-time countywide revenues and departments spending at or below their budgeted expenditures, staff projects a $27.3 million budgetary savings for 2017-18. Of that balance, $20 million will be used to support the next operating budget and $7.3 million will be recommended for one-time allocations in the 2018-19 proposed budget.
The Board received the report and provided feedback to staff.
