About the Budget:

So, what does the County Budget cover? In the unincorporated areas, the County provides things a city typically would, like roads, parks, libraries, and more.

But regionwide, the County has even larger responsibilities. For example, it provides services for mental health and substance use issues and provides food and medical assistance to those who need them. The County addresses homelessness and affordable housing, monitors public health for disease outbreaks, and inspects restaurants, buildings, gas stations, price scanners, harmful insects, and beach water.

The District Attorney’s Office, Probation, Office of Emergency Services, and Child Support provide services to the entire county too. The Sheriff’s Department oversees the unincorporated area but is also paid by some cities for law enforcement. The County runs elections, collects property taxes, keeps vital records and the list goes on.

Funding must support all existing programs and cover new ones. Where does the money for the budget come from? A large share comes from the state and federal governments. But those tax dollars must be spent on certain programs. Some money comes in from property taxes, fees for services, and other sources.

Once the state and federal dollars are accounted for, the County looks at what funds are left to spend and considers how to get the most out of the remaining tax dollars.
