The Budget Manager is responsible for the management, direction, and integration of comprehensive budget planning services for the County and its service districts, which include the development, implementation, and administration of the annual budget.  The incumbent is responsible for developing and analyzing performance measurement systems, performance-based budgeting, and financial forecasts.  The Budget Manager will also oversee the online budget management system, ensuring the accurate processing and maintenance of records regarding budget activities for the County and its service districts.
