A budget is a financial plan that shows how much money will be available, where it comes from, and how it will be used in a given time frame. Peoria County's fiscal year is January 1-December 31. Our finance department prepares the budget with direction from the County Board and County Administrator. Our budget is a tool for implementing the policies adopted by a governing body. It provides financial and operational direction, facilitates decision-making, and controls the activities and expenditures of government. A well-defined, sound budgeting process is an indispensable component of an economical and efficient local government.
