2017-2018 Budget Book
The Fiscal Year 2017-2018 Mendocino County Adopted Budget book is now available to the public. The book is available to download on the County’s Budget webpage or a limited number of hard copies are available for purchase at the Mendocino County Executive Office.
This year’s budget was prepared based on three budget preparation workshops, held in March, April, and May and adopted after two days of budget hearings in June. This process was critical in developing a budget that is responsive to community needs. The budget addresses the needs of the citizens of Mendocino County with a focus on maintaining and improving County services, investment in employees, investing in infrastructure, continued long-term debt reduction, and building and maintaining the General Reserve.
The County budget is also available through the County Budget Portal. The portal was launched in the fall of 2015 in an effort to provide a more inclusive and transparent budget. Mendocino County partnered with OpenGov.com to provide a new web-based financial transparency and business intelligence tool that dynamically presents the County's revenues and expenses, from multi-year trends to line item level details. By using the OpenGov platform, residents and staff can use this website to have access and a better understanding of the County’s budget.
