2013 Expenditures Appropriated by County Council

24 Sep

Much of the discussion surrounding the Monroe County budget process focuses around the General Fund, both because that fund supports most (but not all) of the core county government functions, but also because that fund is relatively unrestricted in use, and therefore allows a greater degree of discretion and prioritization by Council members. However, although it is the largest, the General Fund is only one fund that the Council appropriates from during the annual budget process — and focus solely on the General Fund doesn’t properly present the full picture of the functions of and expenditures on County government operations.

The following table summarizes all of the funds and budgets appropriated by the County Council during the past four days of budget hearings for 2013, in the interest of providing a better picture of the scope of responsibility and authority of the County Council for the budgeting process.

While you are looking at this table, please note the following:

1. I didn’t always use the exact legal title of the fund; if the legal title was unclear or abbreviated, I used editorial discretion to make it a bit clearer.

2. There are other funds for certain county operations that are not appropriated by the County Council (such as Community Corrections) and others that are appropriated as-needed, rather than during the annual budget process (such as funds for grants).

3. In general, money is not transferrable between funds, except in certain very limited circumstances.

4. The first two funds together, General and COIT, now comprise what has formerly been the General Fund.

Following are the 2013 budgets appropriated by the Monroe County Council during the 2013 budget hearings. Note that these budgets will be formally approved and adopted during Budget Adoption hearings on October 9-10, 2012.
