VANCOUVER – County Manager Kathleen Otto has presented her recommended 2023 budget to the county council for consideration.
“The recommendations for the 2023 annual budget address appropriate level of reserves; minimizing impacts to services and residents; and critical needs,” Otto said during a recent presentation to council. “Additional budget items will be considered in early 2023 including compensation considerations, capital projects, and any outstanding jail transition-related items.”
The Clark County Council will consider the $721.2 million budget during public hearings that begin at 2 p.m. Mon., Dec. 5. At this first hearing, the county’s other elected officials will be first to testify on budgets proposed by their departments. Council will continue the public hearing to 10 a.m. Tue., Dec. 6 in order to hear public testimony regarding the budget. If needed, the budget hearing will be continued to 10 a.m. Wed., Dec. 7.
All hearings are held in a hybrid format with the option of attending in person or via Webex.
