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.
2022 Preliminary Levy
On September 21, 2021 the County Board approved a preliminary maximum levy of $54,940,085. This represents a 4.95% increase from the 2021 levy. Now that the preliminary levy is adopted, the Board cannot increase the levy, but can reduce it. The County Board again set the Regional Rail levy at $0 primarily due to the 2018 adoption of the Local Options Sales Tax.
The 2022 Budget & Levy Summary Memo from the County Administrator can be found here.
