The Annual Financial Statement is the official report of the county's financial position at the close of the fiscal year. It's produced to provide the County Judge, Quorum Court, staff, residents, and the general public with information about Garland County's operations and financial position. We go well above and beyond the minimum accounting standards to make sure the work of our county is transparent and fully disclosed to taxpayers.
The annual budget is the proposed plan for raising and spending money for all the projects, activities, events, personnel, and services for the fiscal year. It's a state law that the Town operates under a balanced budget administered in accordance with the Local Government Budget and Fiscal Control Act. The budget incorporates the goals, priorities, and policies adopted by Town Council. See the previous adopted budgets for the County.
