Latest Budget News
On Tuesday, January 6, 2015, the Gwinnett County Board of Commissioners adopted a $1.42 billion budget for fiscal year 2015. The balanced budget holds the line on property tax rates and is based on a small amount of growth in the tax digest.

The operating budget for fiscal year 2015 totals $1.05 billion and includes pay-for-performance increases for non-sworn employees and a step increase for public safety personnel. The budget will also fund new staff positions for judicial services, the animal shelter, a new fire station and the new Level Creek Park scheduled to open this year. Roadside maintenance such as mowing and trimming sidewalks and medians and sweeping curbs and turn lanes will be partially restored through the use of contracts with private companies. Gwinnett will also bring back Saturday bus service for local routes and add two daily express service trips from the Indian Trail Park and Ride lot to help meet demand.

The $371.04 million capital budget includes construction of two fire stations using SPLOST funds. The new Fire Station 31 will serve Georgia Gwinnett College and the surrounding community and Fire Station 10 will be relocated to improve fire and emergency services coverage in the Mall of Georgia area. Existing personnel will staff the relocated station.
