Blogging the Budget
Pages 14-16 of the budget cover the time frame for development and approval. Looks like early last November, the final figures for 2008-2009 were entered into the Five Year Revenue Statements and that's the first step in developing the 2010 budget. After that, there're 2 and a half pages of target dates until May 5, when the Certificate of Anticipated Revenues and certified copy of the Budget Ordinance is filed with the County Clerk. That's about 5 months from start to finish, though it looks like most of the work on the 2010 budget starts about Jan 9th, with most of the time before that focused on finalizing info from 2008 and 2009.
