Ramsey County uses a two-year (biennial) operating budget. An operating budget is created for the first year of the budget cycle and is monitored to continually improve the county’s financial management and strategic planning efforts. Additional resolutions and amendments may increase or decrease certain funding sources, so a supplemental budget for the second year is submitted to the Ramsey County Board of Commissioners for approval. In the current biennial cycle, the operating budget for 2016 is $645 million and the 2017 supplemental budget is $664 million.
