  • Transparency in financial planning is achieved through the annual budget process. While the County Judge is the official budget officer for the county, the Auditor's office plays an important role by ensuring compliance with the current budget and assisting with estimating expenditures for the new year. Budget workshops are held starting in the spring to discuss the various departments needs for spending. A detailed, county-wide budget is composed and then posted for review by the Commissioners, the county departments, and the public. Finally, in a formal meeting of the Commissioners Court the budget is adopted.

     

    Below are listed the current county budget along with prior years and the proposed version for the upcoming fiscal year which starts on October 1, 2018.
