The fiscal year of Lake County's annual budget is October 1 through September 30. It is the Office of Management & Budget's commitment to account for and manage public funds appropriately and openly, to recommend effective and efficient financial plans, and to ensure adequate funding is available to carry forward programs as directed by the Board of County Commissioners.
Sound fiscal policies that are realistic and consistent provide essential guidance for the long-term programming of services and facilities. They are the framework under which budget and tax decisions are made.
The Office of Management & Budget also manages special assessments which certify the assessment roll for fire services and municipal service benefit units. These assessment rolls are delivered to the Tax Collector's Office each year in order to be placed on the property tax bills.
