2017 budget proposal invests in key areas
Gwinnett Commission Chairman Charlotte Nash presented a proposed $1.56 billion budget for fiscal year 2017 to the public and the Board of Commissioners during a briefing on November 15. After a public hearing on December 5 and opportunity for public input through the end of the year, commissioners will finalize the budget during their first meeting in January.

Nash said, “This proposal is in line with Gwinnett’s history of sustainable, conservative budgeting practices and looks at least three to five years ahead at future implications of our decisions. The primary focus of this proposed budget is on retaining employees, supporting public safety, expanding the judiciary to meet demand and enhancing community engagement.”

Residents and business people were again tapped by Nash to serve as volunteers on a budget review committee. They heard presentations from elected officials and department directors in late summer and studied departmental business plans, budget needs and revenue projections before making their recommendations for the 2017 budget.

They invite oral or written comments about the budget during the public hearing or through an online comment form through Saturday, December 31. The Board plans to adopt the 2017 budget on Tuesday, January 3.
