Board adopts balanced 2014 budget
On January 7, 2014, the Gwinnett County Board of Commissioners adopted a $1.5 billion fiscal year 2014 budget that preserves core services and focuses on priorities set by commissioners during a strategic planning session held in May 2013. The balanced budget holds the line on property tax rates, expands the delivery of emergency medical services, addresses the issue of employee retention and recruitment and funds the impact of legislation and other external factors.

The operating budget totals $1.027 billion. It includes a three percent raise for employees, the first increase in five years, and allocates funds for community outreach, juvenile justice reform, drug court expansion and a library reserve. The budget also absorbs a nearly 10 percent increase in health care costs.

The capital budget totals $486 million and includes funding for projects from the 2014 Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax that begins collections on April 1 when the current SPLOST program ends. Voter approval of the SPLOST renewal last November allowed for the County to budget the use of sales tax rather than property tax for some essential purchases and improvements like ambulances, fire trucks and road resurfacing.
