County Manager Penny Postoak Ferguson presented the proposed FY 2020 Budget on May 9. It maintains a constant mill levy for Johnson County property owners. It also aligns with the county’s emergency and safety-net services rated “most important” future priorities in the 2019 Community Survey and with top priorities of the Johnson County Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) for 2019-2020.
The county’s proposed FY 2020 Budget totals $1.26 billion, with expenditures estimated at $934.5 million and reserves set at $331.4 million. The funding supports the departments and agencies that comprise Johnson County Government to serve and protect a county population of more than 604,000 residents. More information is available in this news release. Information and presentations on the FY 2020 proposed budget are available here.
