Budgeting and Financial Basics for County Commissioners

As an elected official, you have a tremendous amount of responsibility for your county’s finances.  While the budget is your primary tool for affecting policy and managing county operations, your responsibility goes beyond simply developing and approving a balanced budget.  It is an ongoing process.   

Please join us for this informative and engaging session where we help you understand budgeting as well as your other financial responsibilities.  We will also focus on what you need from your managers and finance officers to make good decisions.
