Each year County staff forecasts the revenues it will receive and the expenditures it will incur in the upcoming year. The resulting formal document is known as the Municipal Budget.
The budget is constantly monitored throughout the year to determine if the County is spending more or less than its revenues; the County then makes adjustments in spending in order to ensure that the budget is balanced at the end of the year.
This annual financial plan specifies the level of County services and resources to be provided in the coming year, including personnel positions, capital expenditures and operating expenses needed to provide these services.
