Commissioners adopt $1.56 billion budget
The Gwinnett County Board of Commissioners on Tuesday, January 3 adopted a $1.56 billion budget for fiscal year 2017.The adopted budget is up about 5.6 percent from 2016 and includes a $1.18 billion operating budget plus another $384 million for capital improvements.

Board of Commissioners Chairman Charlotte Nash said, “The budget upholds Gwinnett’s history of sustainable, conservative budgeting practices while looking ahead at future implications of our decisions. I appreciate the citizen review team members, County staff, and elected offices for their hard work in developing this year’s budget. The primary areas of focus for 2017 are retaining employees, supporting public safety, expanding the judiciary to meet demand, and enhancing community engagement.”

With the approval of the new six-year SPLOST program, an estimated $950 million is slated for county and city capital improvements in transportation, recreation, civic center expansion, public safety, libraries, and senior services.

Capital improvements funded by SPLOST programs include an $82 million expansion of the Gwinnett Justice and Administration Center, expansions and improvements at multiple County parks, library replacements in Duluth and Norcross, and various road improvements. Construction on the courthouse expansion is slated to begin in the middle of 2017 and should be completed in late 2019. The senior center housed in the Norcross Human Services Center will also be renovated.
