Budgets and Audits

April 2, 2014 by Kevin Gentry

The County of Middlesex operates on the fiscal year of July 1 to June 30.  The County Administrator is responsible for preparing and presenting the annual budget to the Board of Supervisors.  Budget requests are sent to all Departments in December of each year.  The Board of Supervisors normally adopts the County budget at their first meeting in April.   Middlesex County collects real estate taxes twice a year, which requires that tax tickets be ready for mailing by the first week of May.

Public Hearings are held prior to the adoption of the County budget.
