WASHINGTON COUNTY 2020 Finance Plan (DRAFT)   Released: 03/19/2009


The Finance Plan includes a broad overview of funding basics and two key
operational elements, the Resource Allocation Strategy and Resource Reduction
Strategy. The Resource Allocation Strategy essentially describes the method used
to determine how the various types of County services are to be prioritized, and
subsequently, how they are to be funded. The Resource Reduction Strategy
establishes a well-planned, orderly approach to the reduction in services. An
important underlying principle of the Resource Reduction Strategy is that
specific plans for reducing services and expenditures will be addressed and
implemented before additional revenue sources are sought.
