One of the primary County Council duties is "to levy taxes, appropriate revenue, and adopt budgets for the County" (Charter, Section 2.20 (1)(a)).

The County Council adopts an annual budget by December 1 of each year. During the rest of the year, the Council may consider supplemental budgets and other budget changes, such as provisos and companion annual budget proposals.
