Boulder County Annual Budget

Our annual budget process allows for the careful allocation of tax dollars to help with important county functions such as maintaining our well-traveled roads, conducting law and public safety services, providing housing counseling and nutrition assistance, and working together to create visionary open space and land use policies.
