Message from the County Administrator – Susan S. Muranishi

Welcome to the County of Alameda’s new budget dashboard. The budget dashboard is part of our larger goal to bring you information about our services in a user-friendly and informative format. It is designed to give you a better understanding of how your tax dollars are invested with highlights on funding for mandated and essential services. The County’s annual budget is the window to the investments that the Board of Supervisors makes in the community on your behalf.

I invite you to read my budget message that highlights the financial and policy issues contained in the budget that was submitted to the Board of Supervisors for their approval. In addition, in “Budget Documents & Reports” you will find details of the FY 2014-15 Proposed 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 the strongest reserve position among the largest and most highly rated counties in the state.* The Board of Supervisors has balanced the annual budget with minimal expenditure cuts and no significant lay-offs since 2009.

Alameda County offers free Leadership Academies to introduce the public to our services and operations. To learn more about the County’s adult or youth leadership academies, please click here for more information: Adult Leadership 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.
