About SCLD / Finances
During each budget preparation cycle, three-year revenue and expense projections are developed to determine the sustainability of ongoing maintenance and operations and the ability to support potential new programs and services.
A dedicated property tax levy of 50¢ per $1,000 of assessed valuation in the unincorporated county and annexed municipalities accounts for more than 93% of annual funding. Remaining revenue is derived from interfund transfers, interest earnings, contract fees, and other fees and charges.
Budgeted 2011 revenue is $11,488,067. Property taxes and contract fees total $10,999,597. Other revenue is $488,470. Budget expenditures are $11,223,275 and the unrestricted operating reserve is $1,710,807.
