Annually, the County Administrator’s Office, in conjunction with all County Departments, works to develop a sound operating plan for the County of Sonoma for the approaching fiscal year.
This plan is initially approved by the Board of Supervisors to provide for operations in the new fiscal year until the books of the old fiscal year are closed. At that point, a series of adjustments are drawn up to reflect the actual ending/beginning balances for each of the funds the County maintains and actual progress on multi-year projects already underway.
The Board of Supervisors then holds public hearings on the recommended budget and any recommendations for adjustments. Staff compiles the approved adjustments and any other Board direction during the hearings and the result is the adopted budget for the year.
