The Barton County Operating Budget is developed through the cooperative efforts of the County Operations Director, Elected Officials, Department Heads and those outside agencies receiving funding from the County. In May of each year they are asked to submit preliminary budget requests for the Operating Year. After reviewing the requests, the County Commissioners then meet with those same persons in June and July and go over the proposed budget. Changes from those meetings are incorporated into the proposed budget. It is then presented to the Barton County Commissioners to receive public comment. After a presentation of the proposed budget, the County Operations Director will request authorization to publish the Notice of Budget Hearing. The public notice sets the maximum tax levy and budget expenditures for the operating year. The hearing and adoption of the budget are concluded in August.
