The annual budget is the financial plan for the upcoming fiscal year, a policy document to direct actions, and a goal attainment plan to implement the strategic goals of the District. The fiscal year begins on July 1st and concludes on the following June 30th of each year.
As defined by public law, the budget committtee is an advisory group comprised of the Board of Commissioners and an equal number of appointed members from the District. The appointed members of the budget committee serve for staggered three-year terms.
The budget committee conducts public meetings to hear the budget message and review the budget proposed by the budget officer in May of each year. One of its most important functions is to listen to comments and questions from interesed citizens and consider their input while deliberating on the budget. The budget committee can revise the proposed budget to reflect changes as it considers input from the community providing that the revisions still produce a balanced budget. When the committee is staisfied, it approves the budget by motion and then forwards it on to the Board of Commissioners for final consideration and adoption in June.
