The PWC budget has two major elements, the capital budget and the operating budget. The capital budget includes all projected expenditures for improvements and/or additions to the County’s capital inventory, such as roads, facilities, and parkland. The largest funding source for the capital budget is debt, in the form of bonds, and the largest expenditure is debt service on those bonds.
The operating budget includes all projected expenditures not included in the capital budget, including the operating transfer to PWC Schools. The operating budget funds day-to-day County service delivery, and excluding the transfer to the Schools, the largest expenditure category is employee compensation.
The tables below depict the proposed FY 15 all funds and general fund expenditure budgets.
