Innovative Look at County Needs Creates "Outcome-based" Budget

It's an innovative way of budgeting, and Mesa County is one of the first large governmental agencies to use an outcome–based approach to putting together agency funding.

Unlike traditional budget processes, "outcome–based" programs ask how funding can achieve a desired result for programs such as pubic health.

Commissioner Janet Rowland says this process is intended to eliminate the "black hole" of government funding and make the budget easier for the public to understand.

It took people from all levels of county government to put together this year's budget. For more information on this year's budget and how it came about, look for the Mesa County link on our web site home page under "local links."
