Proposed 2023 budget focuses on service excellence, sustainability, and preparedness
Gwinnett County Board of Commissioners Chairwoman Nicole Hendrickson presented her proposed budget on November 15 to guide County government spending for the 2023 fiscal year.
The proposed budget totals $2.26 billion. It consists of a $1.77 billion operating budget and a $488 million capital improvements budget, which includes funds from the County’s Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax program. Voters last week opted to extend the County’s one-cent SPLOST program for another six years beginning in April.
Commissioners will accept public comments at a public hearing Monday, December 5 at 7:00pm at the Gwinnett Justice and Administration Center and online through December 31. They will adopt a final budget Tuesday, January 3, 2023.

Chairwoman Hendrickson said the proposed budget addresses challenges facing the County, including hiring and retaining a qualified workforce, inflation, and supply chain disruptions.
“While the County is not immune to global economic uncertainty, we have taken steps in the creation of this budget to ensure that Gwinnett’s financial foundation remains strong,” said Hendrickson. “With this budget, we will be able to maintain the excellent services that our residents have come to expect and build on them with initiatives that support safety, mobility, environmental sustainability, and more.”
Department directors and elected officials presented business plans for 2023 to the budget review committee earlier this year as part of the budget development process. Five Gwinnett residents recruited by Chairwoman Hendrickson reviewed the departmental requests and made recommendations for the budget proposal.
