2015 Adopted Budget

2015 Recommended Budget Cover

Adhering to municipal budget law in the Kansas Statutes (K.S.A.), the Budget Office manages the development and production of Sedgwick County’s adopted budget, implements the operating and capital improvement budget, and provides special analysis of budget and financial issues. The main statutes, collectively called the budget law, are contained in K.S.A. 79-2925 to 79-2937. The annual budget provides the County expenditure authority to levy taxes to finance expenditures. Additionally, the annual budget is utilized by the County Clerk to levy the related taxes (K.S.A. 79-2930).

Essential responsibilities of the Budget Office are assisting the County Manager in the development of his recommended budget, responding to inquiries of elected officials and the public, monitoring spending by departments, analyzing and recommending County programs and initiatives, and ensuring statutes and resolutions are adhered to regarding annual spending.  The Budget Office also prepares the five-year financial plan, develops revenue estimates, produces the Quarterly Financial Report, and assists departments with strategic planning and process improvement initiatives.
