Budgets

The Office of County Administrator and County Department of Accounting are responsible for the preparation and administration of the County Operating Budget.  The Washington County Board of Supervisors adopts the Operating Budget in May or June of each year for the period beginning July 1 through June 30 (the County’s Fiscal Year – FY).

Many of the boards, authorities, commissions and agencies of the County government have their own operating budgets that are not part of the County Operating Budget.  The County Operating Budget document made available here is as of the date of adoption and does not contain any subsequent amendments thereto.

Audits

The County Department of Accounting, Office of County Administrator and Washington County Board of Supervisors are responsible for the preparation of an annual audit of the County’s financial records through an independent certified public accountant.

The Most Recent County Audit listed here is for the most recent County fiscal year period (July 1 – June 30) where an audit has been completed and accepted by the Board of Supervisors.  Many of the boards, authorities, commissions and agencies of the County government have their own audits that are not part of the County audit.

County audits for previous fiscal years are also made available here.  Washington County maintains nationally-recognized credit ratings through Moody’s Investor Services and Standard & Poor’s.
