Timeline for Laurens County Budget

Laurens County Administrator Jon Caime presented a schedule for developing the fiscal year 2020-2021 budget at last night’s County Council meeting. The schedule started February 5th, which was a deadline for departments to submit budget requests for inclusion in the first draft.

Caime continued, “There is a March goal for the administration to present a first draft to council, which is for informational purposes only.” He said he hopes County Council can be working on the budget from April to June. Caime suggested April 14th is designated for 1st reading of the new budget, May 12th for 2nd reading and he hopes to have public hearing and 3rd reading on next fiscal year’s budget on June 9th.
