[ARCHIVED] Clear Creek County Commissioners Approve $38.4M 2017 Budget

Clear Creek County Commissioners Approve $38.4M 2017 Budget County Staff, Elects Cut Budget by $2.1M, Raise Efficiencies

Dec. 16, 2016 - Clear Creek County Communications, Colo. The Clear Creek County Board of Commissioners (BoCC) approved a resolution Dec. 13, 2016, to adopt the 2017 budget for each fund, by a unanimous vote. 2016s budget was approved at $40.5M.

County Staff and Elected Officials have been working on the budget for several months, public hearings were held in October 2016, and interested taxpayers were given the opportunity to file or register any objections to the budget, as well. County Staff and Officials 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 were required by Colorado Statute, or not; and, what costs were associated with services provided by County offices.

I am very pleased with the progress our team showed during this 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 easier, he added.

The Clear Creek County 2017 budget should be finalized and posted publically (to the County’s website) by Feb. 3, 2017. The 2017 proposed County Budget can be viewed at: .
