As work gears up to prepare the 2013 budget, Washington County residents and those interested in the county’s financial statements may find them on the county’s website. Anyone seeking more information on the county’s financial statements may go to www.co.washington.mn.us. On the right-side green box, a section titled “Budget” may be found. From there, a number of budget documents may be found, including the entire 2012 budget, and a document that explains the “Budget-in-Brief.” On the same page, web links will also take readers to the county’s budget from previous years and the county’s capital improvement plan. For more information, call the Office of Administration at 651-430-6001.
