Budget Materials Now Available
Manatee County's budget process begins in May/June when the County Administrator delivers a Recommended Budget to the Board of County Commissioners.
Once the Property Appraiser has finalized tax rolls by July 1, the Board receives a Proposed Budget which has up-to-date tax information and any changes from the earlier Recommended Budget.
Two public hearings are held in September before the Board approves the Adopted Budget for the fiscal year beginning October 1.
Please see below for specific budget meeting and public hearing information as it becomes available.
