Current economic conditions have also played a role as rising prices and supply chain shortages have created difficulties in obtaining necessary goods and equipment. The County shares resources between County operations and WJCC Schools, and a measured approach was taken to ensure a fair allocation of resources that would benefit as many community needs as possible. These factors, in addition to the goals of the County’s Strategic Plan, helped to shape this proposed budget. Highlights include:
After a community meeting and a business meeting on the budget, the Board of Supervisors is expected to vote on the County’s FY2023 Proposed Budget at the May 10 meeting at 5 p.m. Once adopted, the FY2023 budget will cover July 1, 2022-June 30, 2023. Opportunities for citizen input are as follows:
The Board of Supervisors budget discussion will be held at their Business Meeting on April 26 at 1 p.m. in the Board Room at 101 Mounts Bay Road, Building F.
