Gwinnett County Board of Commissioners adopts 2021 budget
In its first major vote of the year, the new Gwinnett County Board of Commissioners approved the 2021 budget.
The budget for 2021 totals $1.91 billion, up 3.7 percent from the 2020 adopted budget. It consists of a $1.47 billion operating budget and a $441 million capital improvements budget, which includes funds from the County’s SPLOST program.
“This budget addresses issues facing the County today and includes funds to help us face future challenges,” said Chairwoman Nicole Hendrickson. “It is important that the budget maintain important continuity in the excellent services and programs provided by the County while allowing this new board some flexibility for new ideas.”
Some aspects of the budget were tightened to reserve funding to deal with the uncertain impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and for new initiatives and improvements by the incoming Board of Commissioners, such as warming stations during periods of extreme cold and performance audits to increase accountability and efficiency.
The budget was developed after department directors and elected officials each presented business plans for 2021 to the budget review team in the fall. Commissioners held a public hearing on the budget December 9 and accepted comments in writing and online through December 31 before making their final decision.
