Budget and Management Services

Polk's budget office prepares the county's budget each year and oversees the five-year community investment projects, along with monitoring expenditures for the county commission and ensuring effective and efficient use of resources.

Polk County's fiscal year begins Oct. 1 and ends Sep. 30. At the direction of the county manager, the budget office prepares the proposed budget based on requests from the county's different divisions, elected officials and any outside agencies.

Budget work sessions are held beginning in May and the proposed budget is presented to the County Commission each year in July. Both the tentative and final millage rates are adopted in September.
