The Board will hear a request from the County Administrator to accept the Proposed Fiscal Year 2017-18 County Budget, and 2017-18 Plan, including special districts under the Board. The Proposed 2017-18 budget is $555 million, including $440 million in General Fund spending. Overall, the proposed budget reflects an increase of 2.6 percent in spending over 2016-17. Newer priorities include funding for 100 percent “Deep Green” power from renewable energy resources provided by MCE, more resources for mental health including a two-year pilot project for Laura’s Law, and one-time funding for sea-level rise assessments. Staff recommends that the Board schedule public hearings beginning Monday, June 19, and authorize the County Administrator and Director of Finance to make technical and other adjustments as necessary to properly budget and account for grants, projects, and year-end fund balances.
