County-LogoThe 2017 Pre­lim­i­nary Bud­get for San Juan Coun­ty has been pub­lished. The theme of the 2017 Bud­get Mes­sage is “Build­ing for the Future.” With the effects of the Great Reces­sion now large­ly behind the Coun­ty, the goal for the 2017 bud­get is to look for­ward, posi­tion­ing the Coun­ty to serve its cit­i­zens for the next 20 years. The bud­get can be viewed at: http://sanjuanco.com/DocumentCenter/Home/View/10618.

Includ­ed in the bud­get are a “Sta­tus Quo” sce­nario, which includes no dis­cre­tionary changes from 2016, and a “Pre­lim­i­nary” col­umn, which includes requests as rec­om­mend­ed by the Bud­get Team.

In addi­tion to bud­get detail, the Bud­get Book rep­re­sents a thor­ough pic­ture of the pur­pose and mis­sion of San Juan Coun­ty. The Overview sec­tion includes the Bud­get Mes­sage, as well as gen­er­al infor­ma­tion about the Coun­ty. Sec­tions orga­nized by func­tion (Leg­isla­tive & Admin­is­tra­tive, Finan­cial Ser­vices, Com­mu­ni­ty Ser­vices, Law & Jus­tice, and Pub­lic Works) fol­low. With­in those sec­tions, every depart­ment is described, includ­ing their indi­vid­ual mis­sions, accom­plish­ments of 2016, and goals for 2017. In addi­tion, in the Depart­ment Requests sec­tion, every request for new or increased fund­ing is described in detail.

The Bud­get Team is com­prised of Coun­ty Audi­tor Milene Hen­ley, Coun­ty Man­ag­er Mike Thomas, Chief Deputy Audi­tor Kim Her­renkohl, and Health and Com­mu­ni­ty Ser­vices Direc­tor Mark Tompkins.
