The Board will hear a request from the County Administrator to receive a report of the budget outlook and the 5-year General Fund projection. Long-term projections pointed toward budget shortfalls beginning in fiscal year 2018-19 resulting from a slowdown in the growth rate of County property tax revenues and increased personnel costs. Since June 2016, financial forecasts have reinforced the expectation of budget shortfalls beginning in 2018. The County Administrator's Office recommends a hiring review process to ensure our baseline budget is addressing new and emerging needs. The staff is developing contingency plans to balance future shortfalls.
The Board received the report.
