Quarterly Update: Launching A New Budget Cycle

Budget

One of the primary topics of the Board’s Working Session meetings during the first quarter was the start of a deep dive into the Washtenaw County Quadrennial Budget. The goal is to ensure commissioners and the community have a good understanding of what is currently funded by Washtenaw County. The Commissioners view this step to educate and inform as crucial ahead of numerous discussions and input opportunities to develop budget priorities for the next Quadrennial budget. 

At the March 16th Working Session, County Administrator Gregory Dill presented a high-level overview of the revenues and expenditures of the county’s general fund. He also laid out a timeline for additional presentations and conversations across several policy areas, including Public Safety & Justice, Health & Human Services, and more. 

Members of the public are welcome to attend Working Session presentations to learn more. Working Session meetings are currently held virtually and in-person on the first and third Wednesday of the month at 5:30 pm. Learn more by going to the Board of Commissioners' Meetings page.

There is an opportunity to give public comment at these meetings. However, it is encouraged to either leave a public comment using a written comment portal on the website or by attending the Board of Commissioner’s full meeting which happens immediately after the working session.
