Clear Creek County Commissioners Given Proposed 2018 Budget, County Offices Continue Budget Cuts

Clear Creek County Commissioners Given Proposed 2018 Budget,
County Offices Continue Budget Cuts, Raise Efficiencies
Oct. 19, 2017 - Clear Creek County Communications, Colo. – The Clear Creek County Board of Commissioners (BoCC) were given a proposed, balanced 2018 budget at their public meeting, Oct. 10th. For 2018 budget projections, $813K in expenditures reductions and revenue increases were identified.
“I am very pleased with the progress our team showed during this continued and challenging budget process,” said Keith Montag, County Manager. “While we still have a lot more to do to meet those projected lower budgets, the hard work this year should help us meet those next few years’ goals better,” he added. Since 2016, these budget efforts have closed a General Fund gap from $5.9M to $3.6M.
County Staff and Elected Officials have been working on the budget for several months. They also went through a performance based-budgeting process that looks at current service levels, the number of Staff and time associated with certain tasks, whether services are required by Colorado Statute, or not; and, what costs are associated with services provided by County offices.
The Clear Creek County Proposed 2018 budget is posted publically (to the
County’s website) http://www.co.clear-creek.co.us/ArchiveCenter/ViewFile/Item/1217 for
review. Comments on the proposed budget are welcome, and will be
considered until the budget adoption on December 5, 2017.
A public hearing is scheduled on November 14, 2017 at 4 pm and
continued at 6:30 pm, in the Commissioners’ Board Room, 405 Argentine
St., Georgetown, CO.
