    FY 2020 Adopted Budget

    Note regarding the FY 2020 budget process
    As presented to the Board on August 14, 2018, implementation of the new HR & financial system will consume Finance staff’s time through the July 1, 2019 go-live date, and likely for some time thereafter.  The OneSolution implementation calendar calls for significant work on the new financial system to occur during the usual budget development timeframe of September 2018 through April 2019.  If OneSolution is to be successful, the budget process simply cannot proceed in a “business as usual” manner for the FY 2020 Budget. 

    The budget calendar has been crafted to be consistent with the budget development plan to which the Board was alerted on August 14,2018.  Note that we have intentionally planned for fewer budget work sessions.  Budget staff will not accept department requests for new initiatives for FY 2020 and, consequently, are anticipating being able to accomplish the budget adoption with fewer work sessions. 

    The CIP development will run concurrently with the budget development process for FY 2020 with additional and earlier opportunities for Board members to ask questions about projects and provide input.

    Budget Calendar & Work Sessions
    All meetings will take place in the Board of Supervisors meeting room in the Holbert Building, 9104 Courthouse Road, unless otherwise indicated.
