Budgeting and financial management is one of the most important aspects of a local government's operations. The Local Government Services Section provides guidance and resources through workshops, publications, individual consultations and on-line resources. Specific topics include statutory budgetary requirements, the 5.5% Property Tax Revenue Limit, TABOR, budgeting timelines, federal funds for local governments and more. Please explore the links on the left for specific topic areas or review our publications for an array of topics.
The Division has put together the 2014 County Comparison Report to aid local governments, and particularly counties with comparing different aspects of their local governments.
