At Salt Lake County, we operate a fiscally responsible, balanced budget to fund services like parks, programs for youth and seniors, health programs, arts and culture venues, road maintenance, and public safety.

Residents deserve to see how tax money is spent in an easily accessible way. To help achieve this, my finance team creates a "budget in brief" every year to provide details on our approach to budgeting and where the money is spent. Read the 2017 "Budget in Brief"
