CAO Recommended Budgets

Each fiscal year, the County Administrative Officer works closely with the Auditor-Controller and Senior Budget Analyst to balance the County Budget. This includes months of meetings with department heads and their fiscal staff and results in the preparation of the CAO's Recommended Budget for the Board of Supervisors to review and approve. 

More information on the budget process, and current and past CAO Recommended Budgets, can be found at the link below.
