The 2022 Recommended Budget is a baseline budget prepared by the Office of Financial Management (OFM) to serve as a starting point for the Board of County Commissioners to consider as part of their statutory responsibility to set a balanced budget by Dec. 15 for the upcoming year.
The budget presentation will include a review of county funds and a description of expenditures the OFM has recommended for inclusion in the 2022 Boulder County Budget. It will also include preliminary forecasted revenue figures for 2022, many of which will be updated throughout the fall as more detailed projections become available.
