2020-21 Proposed Budget

Next Steps in the Budget Process

The public hearing for the budget and tax rate was held during the Board of Supervisors meeting on April 22. Thank you to those who spoke and commented.

The next step in the process will be for the Board to approve the budget and tax rate at the next meeting on May 13. The budget that the Board will vote on in May will be different from the one presented on April 22. The May budget will use revised revenue numbers (seen in the slide presentation) that are based on estimated revenue moving forward adjusted for the projected economic impacts from COVID-19. The budget will continue to be revised in response to the effects of the pandemic as they become known.

To sign up to speak at the meeting on May 13 or to submit a comment for Board consideration, please complete the form at the bottom of this page.
