The Stanislaus County Chief Executive Office has released the County’s Recommended Proposed Budget for the 2017-2018 Budget Year. The Recommended Proposed Budget will serve as an interim spending plan for Stanislaus County operations until a Final Budget for 2017-2018 is adopted in mid-September.
The Recommended Proposed Budget totals $1,182,385,239 and reflects an increase of approximately 4.3 percent or $49,161,569 for all funds as compared to the 2016-2017 Adopted Final Budget of $1,133,223,670. The General Fund totals $313,662,951 which has increased approximately 5.2 percent or $15,427,536 from the 2016-2017 Adopted Final Budget of $298,235,415.
The focus of the budget looking forward is striving together to be the best – engaging community partners to leverage the resources in the County and learning together what is working and what is not.
A Public Hearing before the Board of Supervisors to consider the adoption of the 2017-2018 Recommended Proposed Budget has been scheduled at 9:05 a.m. on Tuesday, June 13. The meeting will take place in the basement Board Chambers located at 1010 10th St., in Modesto.
