County Budget

Archuleta County’s budget is essential for the efficient and effective management of the programs and services offered to citizens of the county. The Board of County Commissioners, county administrator, and staff put a great deal of effort and time into preparing the annual budget.


The budget process is overseen by the Budget Officer and the Finance Department and includes considerable participation by administrative staff, department staff and elected officials under the scrutiny of the Board of County Commissioners.

Public Hearings

Public hearings and work-sessions open to the public are also held, inviting questions and comments from county citizens. The calendar year budget process begins each preceding July, with the issuance of a Budget Process Calendar. Per the requirements of Colorado State Statutes, the final budget is adopted on or before December 14.
