The County invites you to attend the Community Budget Meetings.
Whether you live in the unincorporated area or in one of the region’s 18 cities, the County’s budget includes a broad range of services that have probably affected you or your family.
The County plays a role whenever you go out to eat, go to the beach, vote, pay property taxes or need a birth, marriage or death certificate. But the County does much, much more.
The County’s responsibilities cover three areas:
- Administering State programs like social service assistance, health programs, foster care and adult protective services.
- Regional services such as adult and youth detention facilities, criminal prosecution, elections, tax assessment and collection, air quality and beach water monitoring, and food and restaurant inspections.
- Municipal services in non-city communities like law enforcement, libraries, parks, roads and land use zoning.
County executives who manage these programs want to hear what’s important to you before compiling next year’s budget.
The County’s current budget was adopted in June. The proposed budget for fiscal year 2022-23 will be released on May 5, 2022.
