Making Your Public Safety Budget Count #MACoCon

Public safety is an important local function and is typically one of the larger expenditures in a county’s budget. To learn more about the funding relationship between the county and the constitutional offices of sheriff, state’s attorney, and circuit court, attend the MACo Winter Conference session titled “Making Your Public Safety Budget Count.”

Description: At its best, public safety priorities come from a partnership of elected officials and independent public safety authorities. When that partnership doesn’t work, challenges are inevitable. This session will explore the funding relationship between the county and these independent bodies and offer suggestions for building a good working relationship.
