County Budget

Main Content

The Board of County Commissioners adopts the annual budget for the general county, as well as several service districts like the North Clackamas Parks and Recreation District and Water Environment Services. In late May/early June, commissioners hear from the various budget committees to review the Proposed Budget and deliberate and decide on an Approved Budget. Budget hearings on each of the budgets are also held at this time. Following this, the Board of County Commissioners adopts the budgets at a business meeting in mid-to-late June.

Public feedback and community participation is very important to your commissioners. The input that residents provide through available public processes is communicated to the overall Budget Committee (including commissioners) for consideration during the extensive budget process. There are many avenues of involvement in county programs and decision making. Just come to one of our budget sessions listed below, or visit our Community Involvement web page to find out more about opportunities to take part in county government.
