Office of Policy and Budgetary Affairs

The Office of Policy and Budgetary Affairs (OPBA) provides budget, management, and policy support to the Board of County Commissioners (BCC).

The OPBA was established by the BCC to analyze, research and develop legislation, study the Mayor’s proposed budget and support the BCC during consideration and approval of the budget. We also ensure that the BCC has all of the information they need as they make decisions affecting the County, and our, bottom line. OPBA is the BCC’s “financial advisor.”

OPBA holds agenda briefings for Commission staff prior to each of the Board meetings. We coordinate public speakers and facilitate the progress of Committee and BCC meetings. We are working with each Commissioner, providing briefings on the development of the budget for Fiscal Year 2021-22. On this webpage, you can find the reports and other information we have prepared based on the requests of Commissioners and relevant policy information. If you would like more information about a particular subject, please let us know.
