I invite you to read my budget messages that highlight the financial and policy issues contained in the Fiscal Year (FY) 2016-17 Final Budget that was approved by the Board of Supervisors. In addition, in “Budget Documents & Reports” you will find details of the 2016-17 Final Budget.
The County of Alameda is in a stable financial status as a result of the Board of Supervisors’ prudent fiscal policies and decisions. As other counties in the state struggle with revenue shortfalls, often relying on their reserves, Alameda County currently experiences a “remarkably healthy financial position supported by very strong reserves”.* The Board of Supervisors has balanced the annual budget with minimal expenditure cuts and no significant lay-offs since 2009.
Alameda County offers a free Citizens Academy (formerly known as the Adult Leadership Academy) and a free Youth Leadership Academy to introduce the public to our services and operations. To learn more about these, please click here for more information: Citizens Academy or Youth Leadership.
It is a pleasure to share this important information with you as we strive to continue to enrich Alameda County residents through visionary policies and accessible, responsible and effective services.
