Public Notice:

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Board of Commissioners of Walton County has decided to delay the budget process.  The Board would like to address some of the concerns that the citizens have raised as well as giving the economy 60 to 90 more days to see if the outlook may be more positive.

The Board will adopt a spending resolution at its June meeting for the month of July, which will be 1/12th of the previous budget.  This will allow for the regular operations of the county while the Board continues to review the budget as well as the economy. This same action may take place in July for the August month as well.

Therefore the May 21st budget hearing will not take place.
