County Budget

Sherburne County welcomes input from residents. Please direct any comments or suggestions on the County Budget Process to Dan Weber, Assistant County Administrator.

Sherburne County is committed to transparency in its budgeting and spending processes. We are providing an interactive tool that allows the public to review County financial data in various graphic formats. Users can search, sort and download the data.

We intend to provide new data each year, giving the public a multi-year snapshot of revenue and expenditure trends.

See that data at the Sherburne County OpenGov website.

2020 Budget

On December 17th, the County Board approved a certified 2020 budget of $97,203,515 that includes a levy of $50,619,077. This represents a 4.94% increase from the 2019 levy. Additionally, the County Board set the Regional Rail levy at $0 primarily due to the 2018 adoption of the Local Options Sales Tax.

The 2020 budget allows Sherburne County to continue to focus on our countywide strategic priorities:

  • Promoting Healthy, Safe and Livable Communities
  • Encouraging Economic Vitality
  • Enhance & Expand Partnerships While Creating an Informed Public
  • Continue to be Fiscally Prudent Stewards of the Public Trust
  • Foster Organizational Excellence
