Families across Colorado and the nation are facing rising inflation and an uncertain economy. That means paying close attention to expenses and making the most of every dollar. County government is no different.
In Arapahoe County, we are doing more with less—pursuing efficiencies, innovations, cost-savings and continuous improvements when managing resources. We also rely on the professionalism and expertise of staff members across the County.
Like you, the County must prioritize expenditures every year, even when faced with economic uncertainty. Our budget priorities include identifying long-term, strategic investments that will benefit residents for years to come, securing fiscal health, and improving the sustainability of the county’s budget.
We are committed to the goals of fiscal responsibility, good stewardship of taxpayer dollars, providing essential and mandated services, being community focused and ensuring accountability to our residents. In fact, when it comes to acting responsibly with taxpayer dollars, Arapahoe County has a lengthy track record that includes awards, consistently high bond ratings and balanced budgets.
