Question 4:

What is the Board Of County Supervisor's budget guidance for FY2019?

 

Answer 4:   Prior to adopting the FY17-21 Five-Year Plan as part of the FY2017 Budget, the Board engaged in a policy discussion regarding future budget guidance. The Board agreed that the past practice of using the residential tax bill cap was no longer appropriate, given the community desire to maintain existing services and add planned community infrastructure. New guidance, in the form of a 3.5% annual growth cap on future County operating expenditures, exclusive of operating expenditures associated with new capital expenditures, was adopted for the FY2018 Budget. This guidance remains in place for the preparation of the Proposed FY2019 Budget.  [Return to FAQ List]
