The Commissioners Court holds open public meetings to which we call the "Budget Workshop". The budget workshop is held in several rounds during June, July and August. During this time every elected official, appointed official and department head present their budget request to the court for consideration. At the conclusion of the budget workshop the County Auditor develops the Proposed Budget.
The Proposed Budget is presented in an open Commissioners Court meeting, and once approved, is now the official Adopted Budget. The budget can be amended only by action of the court.
The budget is set for funds that are spent on a variety of services in Kendall County. For a breakdown of funds a graph is presented in the front pages of the Adopted Budget showing all revenue, expenses and personnel. The budget consists of the General fund and of individual funds which are set up through state law or county policy for certain activities. These are grants, bonds, special district and county court funds, juvenile probation, road and bridge, and capital project funds.
Our process is open and transparent and we encourage citizens to view the budget and attend any budget workshop meeting they would like.
Posted below is the adopted budget for the current fiscal year along with the five previous years. The current year is available in searchable format as well. Below each adopted budget are the budget to actuals of each fiscal year. This report will reflect amended budget figures along with the actual expenses and revenues at year end. Listed below the current adopted budget are the budget amendments and emergency orders to date for the fiscal year.
If you have any questions concerning the budget please feel free to contact the County Judge, Commissioners, or the County Auditor.
