Clackamas County unveils proposed FY 2015-16 budget

Clackamas County Administrator Don Krupp today unveiled a fiscal year 2015-16 proposed budget of approximately $677.4 million and an all-funds proposed budget – encompassing other county agencies and service districts – of approximately $933.5 million.

The proposed budget reflects property tax growth of about $7 million (including the existing Public Safety levy). Property taxes are the largest revenue source for the county’s General Fund and provide the largest source of discretionary revenue.

The Administrator’s Budget Message indentified several important goals for the coming fiscal year which begins July 1.

Those include:

A budget committee made up of the five County Commissioners and five citizen members will begin a series of public meetings on the budget Tuesday, May 26 and continue throughout the week. Hearings on county–governed districts and agencies will be held June 1.

A public hearing on the budget will be held Thursday, May 28, in the Development Services Auditorium, 150 Beavercreek Road, Oregon City, at 5:30 p.m.

As they work toward an approved final budget, the committee will review all departmental requests and may modify the Administrator’s Proposed Budget according to their own priorities.

The public is welcome to attend all budget meetings and to provide input and testimony at scheduled hearings. Budget meetings are audio taped and posted online for the public within 48 hours.
