How accurate is the adopted budget?

County offices utilize past spending patterns, economic forecasts, and future growth projections to aid them in their budget requests. They also may request new technology or wish to implement new programs. The budget office reviews these requests and makes additions or deletions where deemed necessary based on the same information. Once approved by the Commissioner's Court, the budget then serves as a benchmark for departmental planning for the upcoming year. Historically the County uses 95% to 96% of its allocated budget yearly.
